Siri says that in Houston the Air Quality is "Unhealthy for sensitive groups".

Meanwhile the Air Quality is "good" here in Austin.

I wonder where Siri gets it's info from ? Air Now's website does show 3 areas where ozone readings are above 100, but the vast majority of the area is in a moderate level of particulates and ozone..Of course knowing how you operate you probably searched for the highest readings in Houston. BTW the forcast for Austin tomorrow is moderate as well.

Deer Park has a shelter in place today.

Air Quality numbers for the area though are in the moderate range at 71. The problem in Deer Park is that the pollution is staying close to the ground.

Harris County Emergency Management is having a press conference right now, talking about benzine levels of 1 part per million. If levels were to get to over 5 ppm for over 15 minutes they would order an evacuation.


They're not close to ordering any evacuation, but it is interesting.

Did Siri tell you this or did you go straight to the source website this time ?

The ozone in Houston is actually good ,and since it was elevated ozone yesterday you pointed too, to show bad air quality, that goes to show you are cherry picking info again.

If you look at the national air quality map there is a huge red area in south central Georgia south of Atlanta, I wonder what is causing that area of bad air quality..

I didn't cherry pick any location. I simply said
"Hey Siri tell me the air pollution in Houston."
"The air quality is moderate in Houston at 76 right now." Ozone 28.

"Hey Siri tell me the air pollution in Austin."
"The air quality is good in Austin at 48 right now." Ozone 25.


Try it.
