YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – Air pollution will be higher than normal in Youngstown Tuesday and Wednesday, July 28-29, according to a release sent by the Eastgate Regional Council of Governments.
According to the release, there will be unhealthy levels of pollution in the air Wednesday, with extra ozone being the biggest factor. The council believes that pollution levels will be elevated Tuesday, as well as Saturday Aug. 1-2.
More pollution means that the air may be bothersome for individuals with heightened sensitivity to poor air quality, although the release did not state who, specifically, the air would affect or how it would affect them.
Warm temperatures and winds will help keep more pollution in the area, the release stated.
Sonoma Technology supplies the forecast for the council, according to the release.
