Air quality in the Reno-Tahoe area continues to remain poor with an index rating of 171 AKA “unhealthy”. Dense smoke advisories and limited visibility are expected to drop this afternoon. Outdoor activities and wilderness travel are highly discouraged during this time. For more information on South Lake Tahoe air quality, visit the Washoe County Air Quality Management.
In lighter news, we are happy to report that the King Fire is now at 35% containment which is a 25% increase since this weekend and up from 18% yesterday. The cool and rainy weather has been a significant helping factor. To learn more about the King Fire efforts read more on the Reno Gazette Journal.
