The View from Klamath Falls This afternoon

Here's the view in Klamath Falls today around 2:45 p.m. Thanks to Jim Carey at Klamath County Public Health for sharing. (Now, we hope you're back inside!) An air quality advisory is still in place for Klamath, Jackson and Josephine counties and parts of Lake County.

Poor conditions are expected to last at least the next several days. Remember to check the Air Quality Index or map on this page for current air quality conditions.

Air quality in Klamath Falls -- and Medford, Ashland, Provolt and Lakeview -- was unhealthy at 2 p.m. according to DEQ's Air Quality Index. Air quality in Shady Cove and Cave Junction was very unhealthy. A very unhealthy or purple reading means that everyone may experience more serious health effects. An unhealthy or red reading on the Air Quality Index means that everyone may begin to experience health effects and everyone should avoid prolonged or heavy exertion outdoors.
