Second Ozone Alert of the Year in Effect

Posted: Updated:

The second Ozone Alert of the year is in effect for Tulsa on this Friday.

That means people with lung or heart disease should be aware that increased pollution may cause them adverse health issues, with symptoms including chest pain, coughing, sneezing, nausea and headache.

The first Ozone Alert of the year was on June 13th.

Some advice from the Oklahoma Dept. of Environmental Quality on Ozone Alert days:

*Leave your car at home. Walk, bike, carpool, ride the bus or

telecommute.

*Avoid long idle times. Walk in rather than drive thru.

*Postpone refueling. Wait until evening or not at all.

*Postpone mowing and using other gas-powered lawn tools.

*Postpone errands. Do them another day.
