Blowing dust and sand could affect air quality

The San Luis Obispo County Air Pollution Control District and County Public Health Department say blowing dust and sand in the Oceano Dunes/Nipomo Mesa area is causing the air quality to deteriorate.

They say forecasted high winds will lead to blowing sand and dust through 7:00 pm on Tuesday.

Infants and children and adults with existing or respiratory or heart conditions could experience adverse health effects due to the poor air quality.

County officials recommend people stay inside as much as possible during periods of blowing dust.
