Valdosta still under health advisory

May 29, 2007

Valdosta- The Wildfires are still fanning smoke and ash throughout the state.

In Valdosta, a health advisory remains in effect as smoke continues to blanket the city.

The South Health District is asking people to stay indoors when the smoke is thickest, usually late in the afternoon through early morning. 

"We are asking people to stay inside. We're not telling you you have to but we're hoping you make an educated decision when you walk outside and see the way it looks and smell it. You should just stay inside because its better for you and its better for your family," says Jennifer Steedley of the South Health District.

The health advisory will remain in affect until the smoke clears or the fires are out and has been issued for Ben Hill, Berrien, Brooks, Cook, Echols, Irwin, Lanier, Lowndes, Tift and Turner Counties.
