Taipei, Sept. 16 (CNA) The air quality in the leeward areas of central and southern Taiwan was expected to be poor on Sunday due to a lack of wind to disperse atmospheric pollutants, according the air quality monitoring network operated by the Environmental Protection Administration.

As of 11 a.m. Sunday, the Air Quality Index (AQI) was flashing an orange alert, warning that the air was unhealthy for sensitive groups in areas such as Taichung’s Xitun District, Xianxi in Changhua County, and Mailiao and Taixi townships in Yunlin County.
