>>Air Quality Action Day Issued In Harrisburg

(Harrisburg, PA) -- The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection is issuing a Code Orange Air Quality Action Day today. The Action Day was issued yesterday because a strong temperature inversion is going to contribute to concentrations of fine particulate matter in the Code Orange range. Several southern and southeastern counties are going to be affected including Dauphin, Cumberland, Lancaster and York. Residents are being asked to help limit air pollution by not using fireplaces or wood stoves and avoid openly burning leaves, trash and other materials.
