We are losing track — but Quincy is leading the way for having the worst air quality in the country. There was a bit of a reprieve yesterday, with the town enjoying only unhealthy air for awhile. But, that is over and residents are living with hazardous air quality once again. A contributing factor is the Bear Fire is entering heavy timber and putting out more smoke, which is gathering in American Valley. The Forest Service had predicted that winds would push the smoke east and warned of poor air quality for Quincy. See the chart below for latest ranking.
