Taipei, Dec. 16 (CNA) The air quality in southern Taiwan is expected to remain poor until around Dec. 19 as the conditions there are not conducive to dispersal of the pollutants, the Environmental Protection Administration (EPA) said Wednesday.
The EPA said most of its stations in Taiwan had recorded hazardous air quality levels of 10 on the fine particle pollution index of 1-10 Wednesday morning as a cold air mass moved into Taiwan, bringing pollutants from China.
In northern areas of the country, however, the air quality had started to improve late Wednesday, the EPA said. [FULL STORY]
