At 5:00 Friday morning the Air Pollution Control District issued the Air Quality Alert for high levels of PM 2.5. The particulate levels were recorded at the Ethel Street Monitoring Station in Calexico. The repeated high levels of PM 2.5 is attributed, for the most part, to the long lines coming across the border from Mexicali.
