Spring's Arrival Met With Allergy Outbreaks

Spring's Arrival Met With Allergy Outbreaks
BY NATALIE PESETSKY
NEWJERSEYNEWSROOM.COM

Warm spring weather is on the rise, and pollen is powdering the Garden State. It is thought to be a time of jubilee, especially after winter took so long to leave. But bursting forth in an instant onset is the perfect recipe for miserable allergies, leaving sufferers feeling more like vampires.

“Each individual plant is not pollinating much more than normal. We’re just having a lot of plants pollinate simultaneously,” said Levetin, a biology professor at the University of Tulsa in a northjersey.com article. This creates a, “shorter but more intense season that can exacerbate symptoms for people who are allergic.”

Providing allergy sufferers with pollen forecasts for any given zip code, levels for Little Falls, N.J. will be in the medium-high range this week: between 7.3 and 9.6 out of 12, reported pollen.com. And according to northjersey.com, allergists in New Jersey are prepping the artillery, hiring extra staff and prolonging regular hours. Symptoms seen include runny noses, watery eyes, sneezing, coughing and more, reported webmd.com.
