You’ll notice smoky skies again in Central Oregon as wildfires continue to burn. The air quality index is in the good to moderately smoky range for Bend, but Prineville and Sisters are seeing higher levels that may be bothering some people. Frank Messina with the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality, says he's taken a lot of phone calls and here's his advice. “Well, basically for people to use common sense. People with compromised systems, especially young people with asthma or elderly people should be cautious about going out in the smoky environment.” You can go on the DEQ website to get the latest air quality index, but it is a 24 hour average. So be aware there will be parts of Bend today that will see increasing smoke in the air.
