Moderate is how the Environmental Management Authority describes the current “Air Quality” level in Trinidad and Tobago.
The EMA says the increase in Particulate Matter is attributed to Saharan dust.
In a media release Thursday afternoon, the EMA advised that unusually sensitive persons reduce heavy or prolonged outdoor activity.
The EMA, through its National Ambient Air Quality Monitoring Network and Air Quality Index programme has been obtaining accurate, real-time assessment of ambient air quality in several locations nationally.
It said there are currently four Ambient Air Quality Monitoring stations in Trinidad and Tobago.
Three are located in Trinidad (Port of Spain, Point Lisas and San Fernando) and the fourth station is located at Signal Hill, Tobago.
