7 Days in Dubai - - GLOBAL NEWS -

A rare con­di­tion known as thun­der­storm asthma sent hun­dreds of peo­ple to hos­pi­tals in Mel­bourne, Aus­tralia’s sec­ond-largest city, and four deaths had been con­firmed yes­ter­day. Fam­ily con­firmed Clarence Leo, a night­club bouncer and fa­ther of two, died at home on Tues­day after the wild thun­der­storm in Mel­bourne on Mon­day night caused rain-sod­den rye­grass pollen to ex­plode and dis­perse over the city. Am­bu­lance Vic­to­ria re­sponded to more than 1,870 cases, which was six-times the usual work­load for a Mon­day evening.
