Smog alert issued in Miskolc

Miskolc mayor Ákos Kriza has urged residents not to use cars, especially diesel cars and banned any burning of waste, as the air quality in the city has become dangerous to human health.

As the air quality is at its worst in the evenings, the mayor’s office advised residents not to go out or open windows.

The air quality is also dangerous in Budapest, Putnok, Salgótarján, Szolnok, Tököl and Vác, the public health centre NNK announced on Wednesday.
