See how smoke from wine country fires is affecting your air quality

What's the air quality like in neighborhoods around the Sacramento region? Here’s a look at what filters in local air quality districts are reporting.

Keep in mind, though, that even though your neighborhood has a much lower exposure, you may still be affected more than your neighbors by the smoke.

Your body is the best indicator of whether you should avoid outdoor air or seek medical assistance. Some people become more sensitive as they age, experiencing symptoms such as itchy eyes or throat, coughing, wheezing for the first time in their 40s or 50s.
