Allergy Sufferers, Beware Of The 'Pollen Tsunami'
A "pollen tsunami" is hitting the U.S., giving folks strong allergic reactions, but what's the cause?By Jake Godin | May 7, 2015
There's a storm brewing in the Northeast. But unlike the nor'easters from seasons past, this one isn't full of wind and rain. Instead, it's pollen.
"We have a health alert now for the 45 million Americans who suffer from seasonal allergies. Warnings of a pollen tsunami with doctors warning of one of the worst allergy seasons in years," George Stephanopoulos said on "Good Morning America."
One doctor described the situation for NBC, calling it a "triple whammy." Early- and mid-spring tree pollen along with grasses are all producing pollen at the same time, which is making for some awfully runny noses.
