    Suffolk... Nassau... Richmond... Kings... Queens... New York... Bronx...
    weschester... Rockland.

    Air quality levels in outdoor air are predicted to be greater than

    to correlate levels of different pollutants to one scale. The higher

    effects. People who may be especially sensitive to the effects of
    elevated levels of pollutants include the very Young, and those with
    pre-existing respiratory problems such as asthma or heart disease.
    Those with symptoms should consider consulting their personal
    physician.

    A toll free air quality hotline has been established so New York
    residents can stay informed on the air quality situation. The toll
    free number is: 1 800 5 3 5, 1 3 4 5.
