Ozone Company

It really is no comfort at all, but Denver has lots of company around the country right now when it comes to suffering high ozone levels.

From Kentucky to Ohio to Indiana to Michigan to Rhode Island warnings of high ozone levels are going out to the public.

This is bad news for people who have a tough time breathing. The young, the elderly, and the sick all are more vulnerable when ozone levels go up. Colorado officials are worried that oil and gas activity in Weld and Adams counties is contributing to the current high levels of ozone in the Denver area.
