TRI-CITIES, Wash. -- The air quality here has been up and down, but at this time it is not threatening anyone's health. Even then, the haze has made the Tri-Cities look like smoggy LA all week long, but besides the view of the horizon, most people shouldn't notice a difference.
One local man, Dan Riley says, "I figured it'd blow through. I don't worry about it too much because I don't have any allergies or breathing problems."
You can check the air quality in real-time in your area on Benton County Clean Air's website. We've posted a link on our newslinks page.
