Update for Sunday, Sept. 20: Some areas still affected by smoke

 

As DEQ monitors air quality across Oregon, we are seeing some areas (Roseburg, Eugene, Mill City, and Cave Junction) that continue to be affected by residual smoke. While we anticipate improvement throughout the day for many of these areas, communities nearby active fires may continue to have smoke impacts throughout the remainder of the day. Smoke levels can change rapidly depending on weather. Check current conditions by downloading the free OregonAIR app on your smartphone, or going to on the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Air Now.
