Taipei, Jan. 28 (CNA) Air quality in western Taiwan will be below average on Sunday, with the air quality in Kaohsiung and Pingtung even reaching the level of a red alarm, the Environmental Protection Administration (EPA) said Saturday.
In its air quality forecast for Sunday, the EPA said that except for Yilan, Hualien and Taitung counties in eastern Taiwan, where the air will be “good,” the air quality in most other parts of Taiwan will be below average.
The air quality in northern and central Taiwan and the outlying Penghu islands will be “average,” while the air in Yunlin, Chiayi, Tainan, Matsu and Kinmen will hit an “orange” level, meaning that those who suffer from allergies should not spend too much time outdoors. [FULL STORY]
