disaster-hit zone

I just read the following on the internet from “The Nation.” I didn’t realize I’m living in a “disaster-hit zone.”

Smog crisis continues in Mae Hong Son

Published on March 28, 2007

The smog crisis in Mae Hong Son continued Wednesday with the amount of fine-dust particle exceeding acceptable level.

“The province remains a disaster-hit zone,” Mae Hong Son Governor Direk Konkleeb said.

The fine-dust particles are those smaller than 10 micrograms or PM10.

As of yesterday, there were 160 micrograms of fine-dust particles per cubic metre (MPCM) of air. The acceptable level is 120 mpcm.

The smog crisis has hit Mae Hong Son since early this month.

From March 1 to March 26, up to 6,161 local residents sought treatments relating to respiratory problems – something that could be blamed on the haze problems.
