ADVISORIES
A RED FLAG WARNING IS IN EFFECT UNTIL 11 PM TONIGHT FOR ABUNDANT LIGHTNING ON DRY FUELS FOR THE KLAMATH BASIN, THE FREMONT-WINEMA NATIONAL FOREST, THE SOUTHERN OREGON CASCADES, THE EASTERN ROGUE VALLEY, AND FOR THE SOUTH CENTRAL OREGON DESERT INCLUDING THE BLM LAND IN EASTERN LAKE AND WESTERN HARNEY COUNTIES, THE UMPQUA NATIONAL FOREST, THE SOUTHERN OREGON CASCADES, THE SISKIYOU MOUNTAINS, AND THE DESCHUTES NATIONAL FOREST AND THE MINUS SISTERS RANGER DISTRICT. The Oregon Health Authority has issued a Health Advisory for Odel Lake, located 75 miles southeast of Eugene off highway 58 in the northwest corner of Klamath County. Water monitoring has confirmed that the level of blue-green algae toxins are below guideline values for human exposure. People should avoid swallowing water while swimming or inhaling water droplets as a result of high-speed water activities , such as water skiing or power boating, in areas where blooms are identified. Although toxins are not absorbed through the skin, people who have skin sessitivities may experience a puffy, red rash at the affected area. A Permanent Health Advisory remains in effect for the South Umpqua River and Lawson Bar. Pools in the bedrock along the rivers edge are known to develop Blue-green Algae (cyanobacterial) blooms that can be harmful to pets and people if accidental ingestion occurs. Signs have been posted along several access areas along the river. The Oregon Health Authority has updated the Health Advisory issued June 30 for Lake Billy Chinook, located about 12 miles west of Madras in Jefferson County. The update lifts the advisory on those areas of the Deschutes and Crooked River of Lake Billy Chinook arms affected by the advisory, and confines the advisory on the Metolius Arm to Perry South Cove. Water monitoring has confirmed that the level of blue-green algae toxins are below guideline values for human exposure. However, OHA recommends that people remain cautious when using the lake, particularly with pets because toxins are still well above the very low exposure levels established for dogs.
