The Air Quality Index (AQI) was created to relate the levels of different pollutants onto a scale. The higher the AQI value, the greater the health problem.

When pollution levels are elevated, individuals are advised to consider limiting strenuous outdoor physical activity to reduce the risk of adverse health effects, the National Weather Service said.

People who may be particularly sensitive to the effects of elevated levels of pollutants include young children and people with respiratory conditions such as asthma or heart disease.
