The Mompeán meter in Cartagena stands out, with levels of over 500 PM10, solid or liquid particles of dust, ash, soot, metallic particles, cement or pollen, dispersed in the atmosphere.

Pollution levels in the port area of Cartagena are soaring again. The air quality is extremely unfavourable in the Mompeán register, according to the website of the Directorate-General for the Environment.

The meter, in the area around Santa Lucia, reaches 354 micrograms of suspended particles, as in the previous episode of African dust. It is followed, with an unfavourable quality, by La Aljorra, with 80 microgrammes, and Escombreras and Alumbres, with more than 60.

The forecast is for the haze to increase over the next few hours. In the Cartagena area, this phenomenon will be more evident with gusts of wind on the coast that will last until 12 midnight on Tuesday, according to the State Meteorological Agency.

The City Council foresees a pre-alert situation from this Tuesday, when 24 hours of African dust in suspension will accumulate.
