STATE COLLEGE – The PA Department of Environmental Protection has issued a Code Orange air quality alert for our region today. That means that air pollution concentrations within the region may become unhealthy for sensitive groups, including children, persons with asthma, emphysema, bronchitis or other lung diseases, and the elderly. The effects can be minimized by avoiding strenuous activity or exercise outdoors. With heat and humidity and temperatures reaching 90 degrees today, you’ll want to find a cool, air conditioned location to stay out of the heat.
