County issues air quality advisory for dust

An air quality advisory has been issued for dust Thursday afternoon and evening.

Clark County air quality officials are advising residents and construction site operators of the possibility of blowing dust.

Although no unhealthy levels of dust were occurring when the advisory was issued Thursday morning, the officials said precautions should be taken to prevent blowing dust.

Airborne dust aggravates respiratory diseases such as bronchitis and asthma, they said. And if windy conditions develop, it might be best for children, the elderly and people with respiratory diseases to stay indoors, they said.
