Medford and areas of SW Oregon still experiencing unhealthy smoke levels
The ongoing Stouts Creek wildfire and other smaller fires in the region are causing unhealthy smoke levels in Medford and the surrounding communities. Smoke levels are expected to continue in the moderate to unhealthy range, and may potentially reach hazardous levels at times. Check with your local county health department and the Oregon Health Authority for health information. Also, air quality updates can be found at the DEQ Air Quality map. See the left margin of the smoke blog for links to all information.
