    ...AIR QUALITY ALERT IN EFFECT UNTIL MIDNIGHT CDT TONIGHT...

    The Louisiana Department of Environmental Quality is forecasting an
    Ozone Action Day for East Baton Rouge...West Baton Rouge...
    Livingston...Ascension...Iberville and Pointe Coupee Parishes...in
    effect until midnight CDT tonight.

    The Air Quality Index indicates that ozone will be at the Orange
    level...which is unhealthy for sensitive groups. Increasing ozone
    levels may cause unhealthy air quality during afternoon hours.
    Active children and adults...the elderly and people with respiratory
    diseases such as asthma...should avoid prolonged outdoor exertion.

    Please take whatever voluntary steps you can to reduce emissions
    that contribute to ozone formation. Drive less and make sure your
    automobile is in good working condition. Make sure your gas cap is
    tight. Wait until after 6 PM to refuel your vehicle and use gas
    powered lawn equipment. More information about current air quality
    and what you can do to help prevent ozone formation is available at
    the D E Q website www.deq.louisiana.gov/enviroflash or by calling
