From The Weather Center:
WeatherBrains 101: There was a news item that came in about a weather event that occurred in the land down under, Australia. And in 50 years of meteorology, the professor had to admit that he had never heard of such a thing happening. But apparently thunder asthma is a real thing that actually occurs around the world when thunderstorms and pollen counts collide. Listen in for the scoop on this phenomena.
