After several days of relatively strong winds that helped improve air quality, high levels of pollution were registered this evening across the country.

From Kicevo to the west, to Veles and Kavadarci in central Macedonia, and of course the capital Skopje, PM10 particle levels were way over the maximum allowed limits. Kicevo had 238 micrograms per cubic meter of air, Skopje’s eastern districts measured 219 micrograms, and Veles had 189.
