America, September 16: Air quality has deteriorated in many parts of the US due to a fire in California forests. The air quality has been extremely poor for about a week or so. Scientists claim that the stinging yellow-green air will continue for several days or weeks. The fire in the forests is spreading and it is going to cause further devastation. According to Oregon’s Department of Environmental Quality, an air quality index between 301 and 500 is considered hazardous.
In many cities of Oregon, it is more than 500, which is outside the scale of the index. Health officials have advised people to stay indoors and keep windows and doors closed. Health officer Sarah Present said, “In some areas the air quality is so poor that it cannot be measured.”
