Code Orange alert issued for Atlanta due to smog

Atlanta is not only known for its lively southern culture, but for its air pollution as well. Although it is not something to be proud of, residents and legislators alike are conscious of the smog that engulfs the city on a regular basis.

Recently, a Code Orange alert was issued for the ozone forecast in Atlanta after nearly surpassing regulations, according to The Weekly. On May 12, the city recorded its third ozone violation of the year. As the warm weather continues to roll into the region, environmental and health officials stress that smog control is going to be more crucial than ever.

Individuals who suffer from respiratory conditions, children and the elderly are at risk of developing health complications as a result of smog. Atlanta is just one of many cities across the U.S. struggling to control air pollution.

Air purifiers can help remove pollution and irritating particles from living spaces. The IQAir HealthPro Plus has a HyperHEPA filter designed to trap ultrafine particles smaller than 0.3 microns in size within 900 square feet of space. It can be beneficial for individuals with respiratory complications and those who just want to breathe a little easier.
