WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - The N.C. Department of Environmental Quality has announced that air quality in Southeastern North Carolina will likely be code yellow on Friday.

“Code Yellow is not considered an air quality action day. People who are unusually sensitive to air pollution may still consider shortening their time being active outside if they experience any symptoms. Healthy adults can go about their day as normal,” states an NCDEQ announcement.

Air quality alerts were released by the DEQ for Thursday and Friday with a code orange rating, with some parts of North Carolina reaching code red.
