The Sneeze List
As Dorothy once said, "there's no place like home"... but if you suffer from seasonal allergies and you live in Wichita, Kansas, home might not be so wonderful for the next few months.
Wichita has been named the worst city in the United States for fall allergies, according to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA).
"This fall could be a perfect storm for allergy sufferers, as global weather conditions boost ragweed levels, and fall storms and tornadoes disperse allergens and outdoor mold," the AAFA said on allergycapitals.com.
Here are the top ten cities on the sneeze list:
1. Wichita, Kansas
2. Jackson, Mississippi
3. Knoxville, Tennessee
4. Louisville, Kentucky
5. Memphis, Tennessee
6. McAllen, Texas
7. Baton Rouge, Louisiana
8. Dayton, Ohio
9. Chattanooga, Tennessee
10. Oklahoma City, Oklahoma
