From halting river transpiration to creating water supply complications, droughts have led to many adverse events in the Midwest, but what about the impact those droughts have had on the air you breathe? Not only does this type of dry spell impact vegetation and increase your area's risk for natural disasters (like wildfires and dust storms), it may also have a future impact on your air quality. During a drought, the risk of wildfires and dust storms increases; smoke and particulate matter from these events can linger in your air and impact respiratory health. Dry conditions can actually impact the rate at which plants reduce air pollution, complicating clean air efforts.
Of all the weather-related phenomena that can cause severe economic impacts in the United States, droughts come in second only to hurricanes, according to the National Climatic Data Center.
With drought comes dry air. Ensuring your home's humidity is between 40-60% will help keep your family healthy while indoors.
