Monash University researchers say there is an urgent need to highlight the physiological mechanisms underlying thunderstorm-related asthma to mitigate against an event such as last year’s catastrophic epidemic in Melbourne occurring again.

The freak asthma thunderstorm on 21 November 2016 left nine Victorians dead, caused more than 9,900 patients to present to hospitals, and overwhelmed ambulance and emergency services. It was the most lethal of its kind on record.
