ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Environmental officials are warning of high levels of dust in Albuquerque.

The state Environmental Health Department issued a health alert to take effect until 8 p.m. Saturday.

The agency says high winds are blowing dust, contributing to particulate pollution.

Officials say people with asthma, chronic bronchitis and other respiratory or heart diseases should limit outdoor activity.

Residents who are particularly sensitive should also keep windows and doors closed.

According to the alert, children and senior citizens may also be more vulnerable.
