With sunny skies and mild winds, air quality is poor in central and southern

The Environmental Protection Agency has posted a red alert for several areas
in Zhang-hua, Nan-tou and Yun-lin, and an orange warning from Xinj-zhu all
the way down to Gaoxiong.

EPA officials say weak winds mean it’s hard for pollutants to dissipate and
they will continue to accumulate.

should improve.

cut their output in order to reduce gas emissions.    [SOURCE]
