CINCINNATI -- A recent report from TIME put Cincinnati in the top rankings for the most polluted city in the country.
The list was put together by the American Lung Association. Cincinnati came in at No. 10, in a tie with fellow Midwestern towns Middletown, Ky. and Wilmington, In.
Year-round, the report said, Cincinnati's high pollution rate comes from the industry and coal burning for electricity.
The report said Cincinnati has shown improvement since the late 1990's and more recent years. Between 1996-1998 and 2009-2011, the number of days with high ozone levels fell by more than half.
Bakersfield and Merced, Calif. took the top spot.
