Pollen.com provides list of five areas of the U.S. with highest pollen activity

(Vocus) April 13, 2010 -- According to Pollen.com, the most visited allergy site on the Web, the five areas of the country with the highest pollen activity today are: Grand Island, NE; Lincoln, NE; Topeka, KS; Wichita, KS; Des Moines, IA.

Pollen.com provides conditions by ZIP code, updated daily, and offers 4-day forecasts. The accompanying map shows, in red, areas of the country that are experiencing the highest pollen levels.

“The allergy season is already hammering Americans with a vengeance,” said Roxanne Turner, Director of Syndicated Research at SDI, the company behind Pollen.com.

“There are several reasons why certain parts of the country are experiencing significant pollen outbreaks this year,” Turner said. “Increased groundwater levels, caused by heavy snow and rain in some areas, led to the ground retaining an enormous amount of moisture. Many parts of the country also had an exceptionally cold winter, which caused a late spring start. Many areas of the country have been experiencing unseasonably warm weather over the past few weeks, so trees that had a pent-up need to pollinate pollinated suddenly. A combination of all of these factors caused pollen levels to explode.”

“But the good news is that once all of the trees have pollinated, pollen counts will go down significantly,” Turner added.

Allergy sufferers are filling doctors’ offices, then visiting their pharmacies to fill prescriptions or buy over-the-counter therapies. SDI prescription data confirm the severity of the season. During the week ending April 2, there were 1.64 million retail prescriptions for allergy drugs. This is 3.7% high
