Taiwan to experience poor air quality until next Thursday (Feb 27) due to lack of wind

Poor air quality is expected in some parts of western Taiwan until next Thursday (Feb 27) due to a lack of wind to disperse or carry atmospheric pollutants.

The announcement was made by Taiwan's Environmental Protection Administration (EPA). The lack of wind is the result of weakening of cold air mass according to EPA, CNA reported.

The Air Quality Index (AQI) is expected to remain on orange alert, meaning unhealthy air for sensitive groups, in areas south of Yunlin, Chiayi and Tainan counties, the EPA said.

Orange alert will be in place from Feb. 21 to Feb. 26 in most parts of western Taiwan until northeasterly winds arrive next week.

Amidst poor air quality, the EPA said is taking measures by coordinating with Taiwan Power Company to reduce power generation at its coal-fired Power Plants in Taichung and Kaohsiung.
