A helicopter set off a massive pollen storm while flying over Georgia, and the video will make you want to sneeze

  • A low helicopter flight by a West Point Wildlife Management Area team in western Georgia illustrated a nightmare for allergy-sufferers.
  • In a video the Georgia Department of Natural Resources’ Wildlife Resources Division posted to Facebook, the helicopter stirs up large yellow clouds out of the pine trees, leaving a free flow of the allergen in its wake.
  • Many commenters were shocked at the pollen masses, with some saying they held their breath or sneezed during the video.
  • Georgia is currently one of several southern states with extreme pollen levels at the moment, with oak and birch trees among the worst offenders.
  • See the video that captured the dusty, outdoor nightmare, which we first spotted from WXIA.
