Indiana air quality has been impacted by wildfire smoke moving southwest across the state. Local air quality experts examine levels of fine particulate matter, or PM2.5, to determine safety. This matter includes microscopic dust, smoke particles, and soot.
The air quality forecast indicates that elevated levels of fine particles will intensify this afternoon and evening over southern Indiana and then recirculate back across the state tomorrow. Local partners are monitoring the data and will call public health advisories as needed.
