(National Weather Service, GeoFact of the Day Blog) For Tuesday, September 20th, the National Weather Service is cautioning residents in southern Indiana, the Indianapolis, IN area, and the Louisville, KY area that higher-than-normal ozone levels from carbon emissions may cause negative health effects for children, the elderly, and people with the following conditions: asthma, breathing issues, heart disease, and lung disease. They should ideally "limit their outdoor activities to reduce their exposure to ozone and particulate pollution." The following text lists Indiana and Kentucky counties with Code Orange air quality alerts in alphabetical order:
