Greater Cincinnati and one Northern Kentucky county have some of the worst air in the nation, according to a just released annual report by the American Lung Association.
Hamilton, Clermont, Butler, Warren and Campbell counties received a flunking grade for smog levels in 2012.
The Cincinnati-Middletown-Wilmington metropolitan area ranked 14th among 277 metropolitan areas for high levels of smog in 2012.
The study used the most recent air pollution data compiled by the Environmental Protection Agency for the two most widespread types of pollution – ozone (smog) and particle pollution (soot).
