The cloud appeared in November and kept almost everyone inside for it was “eye-stinging and throat-burning.” The smog is so thick it is is being blamed for a 70 car accident near the city.

The amount of pollution is so surprising that the levels of PM 2.5 (fine particles in the air) soared to 16 times the safe limit. Since the cloud appeared in the winter it is even worse of a time, for the winter is the worst season for pollution since the poor burn trash, and the electricity plants ramp up production to keep up with the heating.
