It's not just the heat, it's the ozone.

The South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control has issued an air quality advisory for Anderson and other Upstate counties until Thursday morning.

The Air Quality Index is expected to be between 101 and 150, creating conditions unhealthy for sensitive groups and it will be declared an "ozone action day."

People with lung disease including asthma, children, older adults and people who are active outdoors should limit prolonged outdoor exertion on Wednesday.
