Although there is no frost, smog hangs over Yekaterinburg. It makes life difficult for the residents

The throat-irritating smog and the sharp smell of burning have accompanied the Russians from Yekaterinburg since Thursday morning. They wonder where this dust concentration came from, since the local meteorological center has not issued warnings about pollution in the atmosphere. – I feel like walking among fire – described one of the inhabitants.

Smog has been hanging over Yekaterinburg from the early hours. The local portal Ura quoted a man who said that the dust “smelled” inside his body, making it impossible to breathe normally.

– I feel like walking among fire. If I open the window, the apartment becomes burnt within a minute – he said.

Social media users also complain about the stench and cloudy air.

Where did the smog in Yekaterinburg come from? The media is asking the meteorologist

Journalists asked Galina Szeporenko from the local meteorological institute why the area had been tormented by smog since the morning, since no warnings against it had been issued. – We have an increased fire risk in the region. The alert is valid from Thursday to Saturday – the specialist explained.

As she added, satellite images show that many fires broke out in the Sverdlovsk Oblast, in which Yekaterinburg is located – and hence dust and an unpleasant smell. The wind contributed its contribution, bringing pollution over the city.

Previously, smog hit the area in August. At that time, the regional authorities appealed to residents to leave their homes as little as possible, not to open windows, to drink water frequently and to protect their respiratory system.
