Poor air quality expected as dust storm from China affects Taiwan

Air quality across Taiwan expected to be poor due to the northeasterly winds bringing particulate pollution or dust storm from China, according to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), reported by CNA.

Air quality monitoring stations already flashed red and orange warnings in Taiwan. This indicates unhealthy air for the general public, and the pollution is expected to spread to central and southern Taiwan.

Red and orange warning for air quality means unhealthy air for sensitive groups for people. Advised to wear suitable face mask when going out.

Dust storms bring strong, dry winds bringing a wall of dust reducing visibility from lingering haze.

CWB assured the public that some portion of the dust will be filtered out by a band of clouds and rain and that the impact should be limited, "so people should not worry too much."
