The Ministry of Environment and Northern Health Authority extended the Road Dust Advisory for Smithers, Houston and Burns Lake. The air-quality advisory for Terrace was cancelled.
The advisory is issued because of high concentrations of dust that are expected to persist until further notice.
Persons with chronic underlying medical conditions should postpone strenuous exercise and consider staying indoors until the advisory is lifted.
If you are experiencing symptoms such as continuing eye or throat irritation, chest discomfort, shortness of breath, cough or wheeze, follow the advice of your health care provider, particularly if you are elderly, have asthma, hay fever, breathing or lung conditions or if you react strongly to dust.
