HUDSON’S HOPE, B.C. – A dust advisory for Hudson’s Hope is still in effect after being issued Monday.

Environment Canada says there are high concentrations of coarse particulate matter in the municipality that is expected to continue until there is precipitation, dust suppression or a change in traffic patterns.

“Levels tend to be highest around busy roads and industrial operations,” the advisory said.

The advisory is in effect until further notice.

The advisory states that exposure to dust is a concern for people with chronic conditions such as asthma, COPD, heart disease, and diabetes. Residents with underlying medical conditions or acute infections are advised to postpone or reduce strenuous exercise until the advisory is lifted.
