Hold Your Breath a Little Longer.
The Minnesota Pollution Control Agency has issued an air pollution health advisory for Rochester as well as the Twin Cities, the Rochester Post Bulletin is reporting. According to the report, light southerly winds are spreading a large mass of polluted air from Oklahoma to Minnesota and thick cloud cover, and fog may have helped fine particulate levels build overnight.
This isn't the first time an air pollution health advisory has been issued in Rochester, with the growing concern Rochester's downtown power plant contributing heavily to the pollution levels.
The advisory will likely be in effect until mid Friday.
