Saharan Dust Air Quality Bulletin - Air Quality Down to Moderate Levels Until Tomorrow (Sunday)
Synopsis: The air quality has declined to moderate levels, as a result of a fresh surge in particulate matters 2.5 and 10, associated with a surge in Saharan Dust, streaming across the area. The threat of health problems, for mainly unusually sensitive people, such as asthmatics, is elevated. 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.
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
