IDEM: Air Quality Action Day on Thursday

INDIANAPOLIS — The Indiana Department of Environmental Management has issued a statewide Air Quality Action Day for Thursday, forecasting high levels of fine particles (PM2.5) in the air due to smoke from wildfires in the western United States and southern Canada. PM2.5 is composed of microscopic dust, soot, and liquid that settles deep into the lungs and cannot be easily exhaled. Those people at risk are particularly vulnerable after several days of high exposure.
