Thunderstorm Asthma community fact sheet

Epidemic thunderstorm asthma events are uncommon and don't occur every year. In southeast Australia, they can happen during the grass pollen season from October through December.

Thunderstorm asthma can affect those with asthma or hay fever, especially people who experience wheezing or coughing with their hay fever.

That's why people with asthma or hay fever need to know about thunderstorm asthma and what they can do to help protect themselves during the grass pollen season.
