Air pollution in paradise

Last week it was the mosquitoes, this week it’s the desert dust. 

Paradise hasn’t been too pleasant recently because of it all.  The flying pests have been breeding overtime, thanks to the heavy rains of late April.  Now dust from the Sahara (yes, truly!) is being blown across the ocean and reducing visibility.  It’s also increasing medical problems for people with allergies and asthma, the VI health Department’s Dr. Audria Thomas told the St. John Source.  A Weather Service analyst said the worst is probably over and things will improve this weekend.

Kayre Carney, at Islandia Real Estate, used her Web log to comment about it, too.   She said it hasn’t really been clear since Monday.
