Atmospheric pressure jumps were not so scary

MOSCOW, November 29 — RIA Novosti. The head of the Russian Hydrometeorological Center Roman Vilfand urged not to give too much weight to the possible effects of fluctuations of atmospheric pressure on human health.

"Yesterday was a record low pressure. Expected soon rapid growth pressures, which could potentially affect people suffering from vascular diseases" — Vilfand said at a press conference on Tuesday.

At the same time, he urged not to believe the "horror stories" in the media, which are attributed to magnetic storms and pressure fluctuations can seriously affect the health of people.

Vilfand said that when raising or lowering to 100 meters (height 30-storey building) atmospheric pressure changes by 10 millimeters of mercury. However, the daily journey of people who work in these buildings, have no effect on their health.

"You can not panic, you can not believe the" horror stories "- said the head meteorologist.
