A smoke health advisory for the Bay Area was issued for the second day in a row Tuesday as multiple North Bay wildfires continue to billow tons of soot into the air. "PM2.5 is so small, about 1/30 the width of a human hair, that it can penetrate deep into the lungs". In accordance with San Joaquin Valley Air Pollution Control District recommendations - if you can see or smell smoke, the air quality is poor and outdoor activity should be limited.

San Francisco officials said that hospitals have already started receiving patients for respiratory issues that are likely related to the smoke from the wildfires, San Francisco Chronicle reported. "It will probably hit the central valley and the East Bay tonight and tomorrow." said Thomas Hall, Sacramento Air Quality Management. Windows and doors should be kept closed to prevent indoor air from becoming dirty.
