Northeast Oklahoma was under an unhealthy air advisory on Thursday and an ozone alert was issued for the city of Tulsa.

The Oklahoma Department of Environmental Quality issued the notice for at least 7 counties.

They included Tulsa, Adair, Cherokee, Wagoner, Rogers, Washington and Osage counties.

The ozone alert for the Tulsa metro area was issued because pollution levels were detected to be unhealthy for sensitive groups. The alerts are day-ahead forecasts when ozone levels could reach those same levels of concern.
