As reported by KTVB, the Department of Environmental Quality has issued a red alert for the Treasure Valley due to unhealthy air. Ada and Canyon County were singled out in the alert.

What exactly does a "red alert" entail? According the DEQ, children and athletic events should be held indoors and the air is unhealthy for everyone. They had previously advised that only older people and those sensitive to bad air conditions would be affected but the air has gotten so bad that the air is unhealthy for anyone.
