Air quality to fall to moderate levels Sunday and continue through Thursday
Synopsis: The air quality is expected to fall to moderate levels, as a result of a fresh surge in particulate matters 2.5 and 10, associated with an increase of Saharan Dust. The threat of health problems is forecast to be elevated, for mainly unusually sensitive people, such as asthmatics. Air quality index: 50 to 100 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 and facebook.com/abmetservice
