The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation has
issued an Air Quality Health Advisory for the following counties...

Richmond...Kings...Queens...New York...Bronx...Westchester...Rockland...

in effect until 11 PM EDT this evening.

Air quality levels in outdoor air are predicted to be greater than
an Air Quality Index value of 100 for the pollutant of Ground Level
Ozone . The Air Quality Index...or AQI...was created as an easy way
to correlate levels of different pollutants to one scale. The higher
the AQI value...the greater the health concern.

When pollution levels are elevated...the New York State Department
of Health recommends that individuals consider limiting strenuous
outdoor physical activity to reduce the risk of adverse health
effects. People who may be especially sensitive to the effects of
elevated levels of pollutants include the very young...and those
with preexisting respiratory problems such as asthma or heart
disease. Those with symptoms should consider consulting their
personal physician.

A toll free air quality hotline has been established so New York
residents can stay informed on the air quality situation. The toll
free number is 1 800 5 3 5, 1 3 4 5.

* At 919 PM EDT, Doppler radar indicated heavy rain due to
thunderstorms which will be moving into the region between 930 and

Tremont, Freeport, Valley Stream and Long Beach.

Excessive runoff from heavy rainfall will cause flooding of small

well as other drainage areas and low lying spots.

A Flood Advisory means river or stream flows are elevated, or ponding
of water in urban or other areas is occurring or is imminent.
