Smog conditions nearly within norm
Severe smog that has afflicted the entire country in recent weeks has largely lifted, though many areas still have higher air dust rates than are permissible. Measuring stations still show three times in the limit in parts of the region of Moravia-Silesia – one of the worst areas for air pollution in Europe. Conditions have also remained poor in Kladno, west of Prague, and in a part of Brno. Elsewhere the situation is returning to within permissible norms..
