As a result, an Air Quality Alert is in effect for central Indiana Wednesday and Thursday. This is specifically for those in with "sensitive respiratory" but could include all of us in the days ahead if AQI continues to worse.

Additional alerts may be needed and latest modeling suggest smoke may become more concentrated in Indiana over the next 24-48 hours. Stay tuned and be alert to changes.
