Poor air quality expected through Thursday: EPA

TAIPEI--People with allergies or respiratory diseases should take precautions when going outside as stronger seasonal winds could lead to poor air quality, the Environmental Protection Administration (EPA) warned yesterday.

The winds could stir up dust and increase the concentration of particulates to over 100 micrograms per cubic meter — about twice the usual level — EPA data showed.

Northern and Southern Taiwan are the regions most likely to suffer from poor air quality in the coming days, the administration said in a statement.

The problem should become less evident beginning Thursday, when seasonal winds are expected to weaken, the EPA said.
