‘Don’t worry’: Mayor Breed discusses air quality in San Francisco
SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. (KRON) – San Francisco Mayor London Breed addressed the “doomsday” red-orange sky on Wednesday morning as well as the air quality affected by the Forest fires.
“We’re really in the same boat,” Breed acknowledged how difficult it is. She said every day brings a new challenge, but she believes San Francisco will come out of it.
“It hasn’t really had an impact on air quality yet because of our marine layer and because the smoke is so high,” Breed said.
“Our air quality is yellow, so of course that could change.” If the winds weaken, gravity takes over and smoke can descend. This will have an impact on the air quality. People could see ashes falling in the streets, and it could be even darker than today, ”she added.
“So please don’t worry. We will keep everyone updated as we learn more.
“Check your neighbors and make sure everyone has the correct information. “
The Air District has now issued Save the air alerts for 25 consecutive days, which prohibit the burning of wood or other solid fuels indoors or outdoors.
