Clark County issues dust advisory

Clark County officials warned residents and construction workers to be aware of blowing dust on Wednesday.

Expected high winds could kick up unhealthy levels of dust, officials said, causing the county Department of Air Quality to issue an air-quality advisory. Officials recommended that precautions be taken to prevent blowing dust at construction sites.

Unhealthy levels of dust have not yet been detected, officials said.

Dust can aggravate respiratory issues such as bronchitis and asthma. Officials urge children, the elderly and people with respiratory diseases to stay indoors during dust storms.
