Tuesday morning, school officials in Kennewick, Richland, Pasco, Washtucna and Christ The King Private School announced their students will be kept inside during recess, lunch, P.E. and other periods they would normally be outdoors, due to very poor air quality from our NW Fires. After being rated moderate Sunday, conditions have worsened rapidly. This image shows Kennewick prior to 6am.
There is hope and relief in the Tri-Cities for the haze filled skies above us.
The Department Of Ecology reported improved conditions over the weekend and are looking for improved conditions this coming week.
