Michigan is in the second day of a PM 2.5 air pollution episode with 
MDEQ Air Quality Division monitoring showing Code Orange
conditions in Southeastern Michigan for the second day.   

Dearborn is dirtiest place in Michigan at 1:10 PM EST at
60.1 micrograms/cubic meter- 24 hour average.....just under the code
Red level of 65 micrograms/cubic meter.

One of EPA's new, proposed standard would lower the level of 
the standard and Code Red level to 35 micrograms/cubic meter because 
of evidence that PM 2.5 air pollution causes serious respiratory
and cardiac effects.

desert near the Mexico border to be the most PM 2.5 polluted places
in the United States at this hour.
