Wallops Launch To Be Visible Tonight

Tonight a launch from Wallops will be visible from the area.

NASA is launching an Antares supply rocket from the Mid-Atlantic Regional Spaceport’s Pad 0A on Wallops Island in Virginia.

The rocket is scheduled to launch at 8:31 p.m. and may be visible to residents throughout the region and possibly the east coast of the United States. This is Northrop Grumman’s 19th commercial resupply services mission for NASA, delivering science investigations, supplies, and equipment to the International Space Station.

ALERT: DEP Declares Statewide Code Orange Air Quality Action Day for Friday June 30, 2023

The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) has declared a Code Red Air Quality Action Day for all of Pennsylvania for fine particulate matter for June 29, 2023, due to smoke from Canadian wildfires. 

The average Air Quality Index readings for the entire day will likely be in the Code Red range, however local conditions could be Code Purple throughout the day.

On a Code Red Air Quality Action Day, young children, the elderly, and those with respiratory problems, such as asthma, emphysema, and bronchitis, are especially vulnerable to the effects of air pollution and should avoid outdoor activities, and everyone else should reduce prolonged or heavy exertion.

In Code Purple conditions, young children, the elderly, and those with respiratory problems should avoid all physical activity outdoors. Everyone else should avoid prolonged or heavy exertion. 

Concentrations of smoke will likely be high throughout the day in western Pennsylvania and increasing throughout the day in eastern Pennsylvania. 

Smoke due to wildfires in eastern Canada will likely contribute to daily average concentrations of fine particulate matter in the Code Red range. Residents are encouraged to check for current conditions in their area.

Smoke from the wildfires is expected to impact Pennsylvania air quality throughout Thursday and Friday, with some possible relief on Saturday. DEP will continue to update the forecast. 

Conditions will likely be worse in the morning as a natural weather phenomenon called an atmospheric inversion will keep smoke filled air closer to the surface and prevent air from higher elevations to mix with air closer to the ground.

Fine particulate matter (or PM-2.5) comes in many sizes and shapes and can be made up of hundreds of different chemicals. Some are emitted directly from a source, such as construction sites, unpaved roads, fields, smokestacks, or fires. Most particles form in the atmosphere as a result of complex reactions of chemicals such as sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxides (called “precursors”), which are pollutants emitted from power plants, industries, and automobiles.

Residents and businesses within the Air Quality Action Day areas are strongly encouraged to voluntarily help reduce fine particulate matter air pollution by: 

• Avoiding the open burning of leaves, trash, and other materials; and

• Avoiding the use of gas-powered lawn and garden equipment.

The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection has issued a
Code Red Air Quality Action Day for Fine Particulates, until
midnight EDT tonight.

An Air Quality Action Day means that air quality within the region
may approach or exceed unhealthy standards. For more information on

BREAKING: I-95 to reopen this weekend in Philadelphia

The section of I-95 that collapsed over a week ago will reopen to traffic this weekend per Gov. Shapiro. 

Shapiro made the announcement while providing updates on the rebuilding process during a Tuesday afternoon press conference. He also said temporary lanes of the highway had been completely refilled by a recycled glass aggregate. 

Mixed with paper and plastic, bits of glass are the basis of the recycled glass aggregate, which is made by the Delaware County-based company AeroAggregates of North America. 

Crews will now lift large outer barriers into place along the new roadway and add a layer of modified subbase to hold those barriers in place, Shapiro said. They expect to complete the east side of the section by Tuesday night and the west side by Wednesday. 

The crews will then begin paving three new lanes of the section in both directions, weather permitting. Pennsylvania State Police will escort trucks carrying the pavers up I-95 to make sure they get to the site safely and as quickly as possible, officials said.
