NORTH TO NORTHWEST WINDS 40 TO 55 MPH ARE CAUSING ASH FROM THE

AND ONTO PARTS OF KODIAK ISLAND. THIS WILL CONTINUE THROUGH
THIS MORNING. COMMUNITIES ALONG SHELIKOF STRAIT ARE THE MOST
LIKELY TO BE AFFECTED...BUT SOME ASH WILL MAKE IT TO PARTS OF THE

REDUCED VISIBILITIES AND POOR AIR QUALITY. THOSE WHO ARE MORE
SENSITIVE TO POOR AIR QUALITY SHOULD EXERCISE CAUTION AND CONSIDER
STAYING INDOORS.
