my god...if you could see what the skies in bay area looks like..its a thick amber color. some days when its sunny, it looks like an apocalyptic dawn. the sun turns in a blood red color. and air smells like burned grass. the smoke is more thicker inland than at the coast. usually i can see towards s.f and south s.f. but now covered up. wondering if android has an app to measure air quality..it would go through the roof

Hi SR, yeah it's been hellish since Wednesday. Friday was our
third straight day of unhealthy (official term) air quality levels.
The recommended N95 respirators are sold out everywhere,
and stocks are being diverted to the North Bay as of course
those folks need them the most.

It's definitely affecting me and very many others. This map
shows what the levels are in different areas. Can only get
within a couple miles for my area (my zip isn't in their
system) but you can judge pretty well from the colored map
how it is for any particular spot.

I need to get a current forecast on when conditions will
improve. It wasn't supposed to be until early next week, but
I got the impression from a forecast this evening that we
might be seeing improvement as early as today (Sat.).

Article showing the same map above:

http://www.ktvu.com/news/find-filtered-a...e-the-area

Worst air quality levels ever recorded in the Bay Area. Beijing
comparability.

(SR - when I first read your post it sounded like you were south
of the Bay Area, but realized you are here too! Hope you're in
those "gold" parts of the South Bay or even yellow if you're
further out.)

Edit to add - I love NextDoor. Someone there shared how to
call up the air quality number for your city/town. Even the EPA doesn't
have all this data (as in the AIRNow site).

Seems like the quote function is not working properly?
And tried to use the "@(poster)" for this post (to let
SR know I replied to his post) but couldn't get that to
come up either.

I love NextDoor too.
When we had the fires up here last month we were able to get more updated information on NextDoor than on any "official" news site!
