LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -- Clark County issued a dust advisory for Sunday, June 28, due to blowing dust and high winds.

The advisory from the Clark County Department of Environment and Sustainability states dust is an inhalable air pollution which aggravates respiratory diseases. Those with lung disease, older adults and children are at greater risk and may feel better indoors.

County Air Quality officials will continue to monitor conditions and will post updates on the forecast page of the DAQ website at redrock.ClarkCountyNV.gov/forecast
