01-01-2015

Air pollution in the region of Moravia-Silesia, in the north-east of the country, improved on Thursday, the Czech Hydrometeorological Institute reports. Only two out of 16 monitoring stations, in Český Těšín and Orlová, are registering values below permitted levels. Meteorologists expect the situation will not be changing in the coming days. The Moravia-Silesia region is one of the most polluted in the country, with heavy industry, traffic and coal heating among the major factors.
