Air Quality Alert issued May 23 at 9:10AM MDT by NWS Pueblo CO

The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment has issued the following... WHAT...Air Quality Health Advisory for Wildfire Smoke. WHERE...San Juan, Ouray, Hinsdale, Mineral, eastern San Miguel, eastern Dolores, northern La Plata, and north-central Montezuma Counties. Locations include, but are not limited to Ouray, Telluride, Silverton, Lake City, Creede, Rico, and Dolores. WHEN...900 AM Thursday May 23 to 900 AM Friday May 24 IMPACTS...The Spruce Creek Wildfire is burning in the San Juan National Forest, approximately 11 miles northeast of Dolores, Colorado. Areas of heavy smoke are present in many areas on Thursday morning, especially along State Highway 145 south of Rico to Dolores. This smoke is expected to lift throughout the day on Thursday as daytime mixing of the atmosphere deepens and winds increase. Winds out of the west or southwest will transport smoke to areas to the east or northeast of the fire on Thursday afternoon, possibly creating impacts in those areas, including Telluride, Ouray, Silverton, Lake City, and Creede. The greatest impacts from smoke are expected overnight Thursday night and early Friday morning as smoke settles throughout the advisory area, especially in lower terrain and sheltered mountain valleys. HEALTH INFORMATION...Public Health Recommendations: If smoke is thick or becomes thick in your neighborhood you may want to remain indoors. This is especially true for those with heart disease, respiratory illnesses, the very young, and older adults. Consider limiting outdoor activity when moderate to heavy smoke is present. Consider relocating temporarily if smoke is present indoors and is making you ill. If visibility is less than 5 miles in smoke in your neighborhood, smoke has reached levels that are unhealthy.
