Lee County scored a B, while Collier scored an A, according to the ALA.

Bakersfield, California, number two for ozone pollution, also maintained its position as the city with the worst short-term particle pollution.Los Angeles:California has the most polluted cities in the United States, a report issued on Wednesday said, as President Donald Trump's administration seeks to force the state to weaken its vehicle emissions standards.

Stockton was locked into a tie for 10th place for the worst year-round particulate pollution with Cleveland, Ohio - once famed for pollution so bad that the Cuyahoga River running through the community once caught fire from massive industrial runoff. Results in the city of St. Louis were similar with a "C" for ozone and an "F" for particle pollution.

Outside of California, whose roughly 40 million residents make it the country's most populous state, Phoenix, Las Vegas, Denver, New York and Houston had the worst ozone pollution.

According to the USGS, the depth of the natural disaster was at 6.2 miles (10.0 km) below the surface. Iran sits on fault lines and is prone to earthquakes that are near-daily.
