Ozone Levels Getting Nasty

This doesn't sound too good.

Patricia Tinoco-Perez of Harris County's Public Health & Environmental Services department says don't go around doing too much breathing right now:

Harris County Public Health & Environmental Services (HCPHES) is issuing an "Air Quality Warning/Health Advisory" for the Harris County area. LEVEL RED Ozone has been reached at the Crosby and Sheldon monitoring sites in Northeastern Harris County and may be reached at additional sites. LEVEL RED ozone means that the ozone concentrations exceed 125 parts per billion (ppb). Ozone at this level may have harmful health effects.

But at least there are not 90 mph winds.
