Antarctic ozone hole biggest on record, U.S. reports
"'From September 21 to 30, the average area of the ozone hole was the largest ever observed, at 10.6 million square miles ,' said Paul Newman of NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center outside Washington.

If the stratospheric weather conditions had been normal, the ozone hole would be expected to reach a size of about 8.9 million to 9.3 million square miles, about the surface area of North America, NASA said in a statement."
