A chemical explosion occurred in Leningrad Oblast, about 20 kilometres from the Estonian border, this afternoon. The people of Estonia are not endangered, as the wind blowing from the west will lead the potential air pollution away from us. Nevertheless, the Narva Rescue Board is carrying out air measurements and monitoring the situation.

The monitoring stations of the Estonian Environmental Research Centre do not show any increase in air pollutants. The air quality can be checked on the website of the Estonian Environmental Research Centre http://www.ohuseire.ee/en.
