Stephanie's story

"I’ve lived in Auckland my whole life and to be honest was unaware of the brown smog cloud lingering over the city. I don’t have any breathing or health problems, but I have heard from a lot of people who have come to Auckland city from overseas or from other parts of New Zealand and have developed asthma or get sick of a cold more regularly. This may be due to the humidity, but I’m sure a lot of the trapped pollution beneath the clouds is to blame.

I notice the air at its worst when I’m sitting in or walking past traffic, the smell of dusty fumes is unbearable and I feel like it has some kind of harmful effect on my body, even in just those few minutes."
