Officials: Smoky air could linger

first_img“The particulates can stay in the air, depending on a lot of things, including wind patterns. Sometimes what will happen is there will be a normal wind pattern, when the winds will come from the ocean and blow the particulates into the inland valleys, then reverse, so there’s a recirculation.” L.A. residents also were warned that wildlife displaced by the fire might wander into backyards searching for water. Officials urged residents to leave frightened or injured animals alone. To report an injured animal, call (888) 452-7381.

Wednesday, the county Department of Public Health issued an alert warning children, the elderly and residents with lung and heart ailments to restrict outdoor activities. “Schools in this area should discontinue physical activity, including physical education, in all areas with visible smoke,” the alert advised. Fine particulates – soot – can hang around for days after a brush fire, said Sam Atwood, spokesman for the South Coast Air Quality Management District. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Coverage of the u10 championship final from 1986 which Naomh Brid defeated Four Masters in was shown first and this provided great entertainment for all seeing a few current players strutting their stuff. A call was then made to Eamon McNulty in Australia through Skype, which gave everyone an opportunity to talk to him and reminisce about the glory days in 86/87. Finally the 1986 final was shown which was of great interest to both young and old.The club would like to thank Fr.Dagens for facilitating the mass on Friday evening, Jamesies Bar for providing the venue and food, everybody who put in the hard work and effort to help make the event possible and to everyonewho came along and made the night a memorable one.The club are holding their AGM this Sunday afternoon in the community centre at 3pm.
