Re: BREAKING-UPDATED!! People being HOSPITALIZED in Britain due to dangerous smog!!
They're showing on Sky a map which has the whole of East Anglia as a 10 - most serious pollution there is. I noticed the 10 bit went on into France but that was the end of the map. They say it'll get worse tomorrow.

Well I'm a Londoner and lived there most of my life; never had any pollution like that. I think with climate change we'll get worse and worse Sahara winds blowing pollution across Europe. Never thought all this'd happen in my lifetime.
As I've grown older I've learnt that pleasing everyone is impossible, but pissing people off is a piece of cake.

Re: BREAKING-UPDATED!! People being HOSPITALIZED in Britain due to dangerous smog!!
dunno



All I do know is that I'm not buying the Sahara story.

The winds are blowing in from the South East - the Sahara is due South/South-West of the UK.
 Quoting: BadMoonRisen


Does anyone else also have an opinion on the wind direction??
BadMoonRisen definitely has a VALID point???

If you take a look at the first chart in this link, it shows that the winds south of us are blowing from the south west, turn southerly over France then south easterly over us. So it is quite possible this dust is being drawn in by the winds right over Europe and into us from the Sahara.

Initially yes. But for six days the same wind direction?

Re: BREAKING-UPDATED!! People being HOSPITALIZED in Britain due to dangerous smog!!
From the BBC link I posted above:

Defra has a 10-point scale for measuring air quality - with 1 meaning there is a "low" risk of air pollution and 10 warning of "very high" levels.

Levels hit the maximum of 10 in north-west Norfolk on Tuesday.

Readings for Wednesday are expected to reach 8 or 9 in much of southern England, East Anglia and the Midlands, and possibly 10 along England's southern coast.


Now I have never experienced anything like this in my 46 years here. Not buying the Sahara Dust story as we've had that many times before.

My eyes have been itching like mad the past couple of days and put it down to pollen - now I'm not so sure.

Weird.

There has not been anything bad happen up here in the north east in years!! We had the tidal surge recently but thats nothing compared to the south. So to claim Northern England is getting worse is a lie. Been the mildest winter for years and we have not been effected by the recent storms.

Because seeing is better than reading.
You are the kinda person that will read heavy rain and storm, but you look outside and its beautiful sunshine. Then you choose to believe what you have read instead of you eyes.lol
Right now in bristol, uk its raining. It is impossible for smog to be around when its raining.
Bristol is just an example so don't hold on to one city.
Now there maybe sporadic smog in isolated areas but that all about it.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 56352216


It's just started - it's not just Sahara sand it's mixed with "pollution from Europe" whatever that means!

"Andrew Sibley, specialist forecaster for the Met Office, said: "Conditions are going to get worse again as we go through Wednesday and the rest of the week." The pollution - a mix of local and European emissions and dust from the Sahara - is forecast in parts of south England, the Midlands and East Anglia.

The elderly and those with lung or heart disease are urged to avoid strenuous exercise outside. He said that a south-easterly wind would bring with it yet more pollution from Europe, and further compound the situation in the UK."
