7th Code Orange Alert in 2016 issued for Thursday, June 9
Smog Alerts are color-coded based on the Air Quality Index, which categorizes air quality in Green, Yellow, Orange, Red and Purple based on the concentration of pollutants.
Georgia Commute Options provides Smog Alerts on days when there’s a forecast for air pollution to reach unhealthy concentration levels — Code Orange or higher. Metro Atlanta residents can subscribe to these at GaCommuteOptions.com/SmogAlerts.
In 2015, there were five forecasted Smog Alerts and only one actual high-smog day.
