Air quality to fall to moderate levels later today until Saturday
Synopsis: The air quality is forecast to fall to moderate levels, as a result of an increase of particulate matters 2.5 and 10, associated with a fresh surge in Saharan Dust. The threat of health problems will be elevated, for mainly unusually sensitive people, such as asthmatics. Air quality index: 50 to 80 Alert Level: II Sensitive groups: People with respiratory or heart disease, the elderly and children are the groups most at risk. Health implications: Air quality is acceptable; however, for some pollutants there may be a moderate health concern for a very small number of people who are unusually sensitive to air pollution.
Caution: Active children and adults, and people with respiratory disease, such as asthma, should limit prolonged outdoor exertion. Stay tuned to updates coming out of the Met Office via antiguamet.com, facebook.com/abmetservice and twitter.com/abmetservice
