TULSA, Okla. (AP) -- An annual report from the American Lung Association says Tulsa County has the most polluted air in the state.
The county got an F for high ozone and a C for particle pollution. Oklahoma County also received an F for ozone but had an A for particle pollution.
The lung association's standards are more stringent than those of the Environmental Protection Agency which still shows Tulsa County in compliance with federal clean air laws.
Other Oklahoma counties given an F for ozone are Adair, Canadian, Cleveland, Comanche, Creek, Kay, Mayes and Ottawa.
Nationally Los Angeles was rated the dirtiest city for ozone.
