Here are the details, according to

"The Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America has released its annual list of the 100 worst American cities to live with allergies in the fall, ragweed pollen’s “prime season,” says Mike Tringale, senior vice president of external affairs for the AAFA and one of the lead researchers on the group’s annual report. The list, Tringale explains, is based on three factors: higher pollen counts and higher use of prescription and over-the-counter allergy medication will move a city up the list, as will a lower number of allergy specialists working in their city.

But what you really want to see is the list of the cities, to find out whether yours made the cut, so here you are:

1. Wichita, Kan.

2. Jackson, Miss.

3. Knoxville, Tenn.

4. Louisville, Ky.

5. Memphis, Tenn.

6. McAllen, Texas

7. Baton Rouge, La.

8. Dayton, Ohio

9. Chattanooga, Tenn.

10. Oklahoma City, Okla.

11. New Orleans

12. Madison, Wis.

13. Omaha, Neb.

14. Little Rock, Ark.

15. Tulsa, Okla.

While Utica-Rome didn't make the top 100 list, a few upstate New York cities did rank on the list:

"39. Syracuse, NY

44. Buffalo, NY

66. Rochester, NY

99. Albany, NY"
