ČHMÚ: Air quality in Moravian-Silesian region worsens

Air quality in the Moravian-Silesian region is quite poor, with the concentration of fine particles in the atmosphere largely exceeding the 50 micrograms per cubic metre level. The rate has doubled or even tripled in some spots, according to the Czech Hydrometeorological Institute (ČHMÚ).

Smog is a regular and seasonal problem in the Moravian-Silesian region, which suffers from the worst air quality not only in the country but for most of Europe, due to its industry, thermal power stations and coal-burning or antiquate heating systems in homes.
