N95 masks may help, not surgical masks — Air quality alert

13 Octubre 2017

The Stanford Department of Public Safety advises that Sand Hill Field could be temporarily closed at times in the coming days to accept incoming helicopter flights transporting patients from the North Bay.

The reason is smoke from the Northern California wildfires coupled with smoke from a big blaze in Tulare County wilderness.

Terrible air quality is expected all around the valley on Wednesday.

Bay Area residents, particularly in Napa, Sonoma and Solano counties, are advised to seek shelter in buildings with filtered air or move to areas less impacted by the smoke, according to the air district. Sensitive groups include children, the elderly and people with lung disease.

The teams have established a YouCaring site www.youcaring.com/firerelief for fans to donate whatever they can to support the victims of these devastating fires.

Yatiziry Luna, a political science major who was evacuated from her home due to the fires said, "I feel dizzy, I was just in class and the windows were all open, which didn't help".

Smoke billows from the hills above homes in the Oakmont neighborhood on October 10, 2017 in Santa Rosa, California. Disposable respirators known as N-95 or P-100 respirators will help if you have to be outdoors for a period of time. Fasano suggests staying inside as much as possible while skies are smoky to avoid breathing both particle pollution and ash wafting through the air. Ironically, there was talk back then of Miami and San Diego playing in Oakland.

Despite the cancellation, the air quality still took a toll on students physically.

Student Health Services has seen a number of students with respiratory conditions throughout the week, but traffic has increased due to Wong's email, according to Medan. The other teams that contributed to the donation are the Golden State Warriors, Oakland Athletics, Oakland Raiders, San Francisco Giants, San Jose Earthquakes, and the San Jose Sharks.
