Baton Rouge, La (NBC33) — An air quality alert continues until midnight tonight for East Baton Rouge Parish and surrounding parishes.
In order to keep you and your family safe, officials recommend avoiding strenuous outdoor activities, fueling your car after 6:00 p.m., making sure your car's gas cap is sealed tight, and waiting to mow your lawn until just before sunset.
Active children and elderly are more susceptible to poor air quality and should stay indoors, as well as, people with respiratory diseases, such as asthma.
