A special air quality statement in effect for Windsor, Essex County and Chatham-Kent.

Environment Canada says that high levels of air pollution are expected today, as the hot and sunny conditions are expected to cause increasing ground-level ozone concentrations in the area.

Individuals may experience symptoms such as increased coughing, throat irritation, headaches or shortness of breath. Children, seniors, and those with cardiovascular or lung disease, such as asthma, are especially at risk.

People with lung diseases, such as asthma and COPD, can be particularly sensitive to air pollution. They will generally experience more serious health effects at lower levels.

Similar conditions may persist into Monday.
