SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — For the second time in a week, Northern California high school football officials have had to delay playoff games because of the layer of smoke from the Camp Fire draped over the Bay Area.
“Due to continued poor air quality across the Bay Area and surrounding counties, the North Coast Section must once again postpone numerous games that were re-scheduled for Monday based on existing and project AQI (air quality index) data,” NCS officials said in the release.READ MORE: Authorities: Suspect In Walnut Creek Nordstrom Smash-And-Grab Out On Bail; 2nd Suspect Appears In Court
At the time of the decision, the Concord/Clayton area had an unhealthy reading of 180, Vallejo 162, San Rafael 160, San Leandro 167, San Carlos 171, Santa Rosa 156 and San Francisco 165.
The National Football League was also monitoring the air quality to make sure it stayed with an acceptable level for Monday night’s San Francisco 49ers-New York Giants game in Santa Clara.READ MORE: Housing Shortage: Inventory Of Single-Family Homes In Santa Clara County Reach Record Low, Realtors Say
