So-Cal Saw Longest Stretch of Bad Air with 87 Days of Smog

(KNX 1070) - If you think it's been smoggier than normal in Southern California this summer, you're right. 

New numbers show the region violated federal smog standards for 87 straight days - the longest stretch of bad air in at least 20 years.

But, a South Coast Air Quality Management District spokesman says measuring consecutive bad air days isn't a  "useful or meaningful" metric to gauge ozone air quality trends.

The District says this smog season was not as severe as last year’s and had fewer “very unhealthy” days.
