Air pollution hits northeast Czech Republic

Air pollution in the northeast Czech Republic has far exceeded the permitted levels. On Saturday morning, the emissions in most of the Moravian-Silesian Region reached double the value of legal limits, according to a report by the news agency ČTK. The worst affected areas include Karviná and several nearby municipalities. Meteorologists don’t expect any change in the local conditions, and say air pollution levels will remain way above the limit over the next 24 hours.
