LAS VEGAS (AP) - Air quality officials in Las Vegas are issuing a dust advisory, with windy conditions expected Tuesday in southern Nevada through the day.

The National Weather Service says winds topping 40 mph could sweep Tuesday across a wide area including southern Nevada, and California’s Sierra Nevada mountains and Owens Valley.

The Clark County Department of Air Quality in Las Vegas is advising residents and construction site operators to take precautions to prevent blowing dust.

Agency officials say high dust levels could create discomfort for children, the elderly and people with respiratory diseases such as bronchitis and asthma.
