A number of air quality notifications have been released as winds picked up in Imperial County.

Niland and Brawley levels of particulate matter 10 – a complex mix of solid and liquid particles suspended in the air made up of biologic material such as pollen and combustion sources such as forest fires, factories and internal combustion engines – are high, according to the Imperial Valley Air Alert website. Niland and Brawley both reported unhealthy air quality at times through the last 24 hours.
