Sweltering heat and dangerous air in the Valley
FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- Extremely hot weather is causing health concerns for some people across the Valley.
Football players at Fresno City College made sure to drink extra water during a conditioning class Tuesday. Aside from staying hydrated, health officials are also warning people about the poor air quality. High temperatures can cause high levels of ozone, which increases air pollution.
"We are anticipating that ozone levels are gonna get pretty high and air quality is going to get pretty bad going into the next few days as we continue to see these triple digit temperatures," said Jaime Holt with the Air Quality Control District.
The Air Quality Control District is urging people to reduce their driving over the next few days. They're also advising people with health problems, like asthma and emphysema, to stay inside.
