Air Pollution High in NE Hungary
Air quality has deteriorated in north-east Hungary due to a high concentration of airborne particles, the National Public Health Centre (NNK) said on Monday.

NNK declared air quality to be “dangerous” in Sajószentpéter and Kazincbarcika, while air quality has deteriorated to unhealthy levels in Putnok. Concentrations of particles are also considered to be too high in Eger, Salgótarján, Miskolc and Nyíregyháza, NNK said.

Forecasts show air quality is expected to improve thanks to strong winds on Monday.
