Wildfires are making it difficult for people to breathe in Atlanta and other cities across the South. According to the Environmental Protection Agency along with others, the air pollution has reached unhealthy levels. It’s making people who don’t suffer from asthma struggle to breathe. Tennessee emergency officials reported that more than 200 people have been treated at just two Chattanooga hospitals for shortness of breath and other respiratory difficulties. Dr. Abdu Dahhan of Harlan, Kentucky said, “It’s making life for people terrible. Even people who don't have lung problems are suffering from upper airway irritation."
