SPECIAL WEATHER

Stagnant Air Causes Deadly Smog in Donora, Pennsylvania...


 During late October of 1948, a strong and long-lasting temperature
inversion in the town of Donora, Pennsylvania, produced a wall of
smog that caused the death's of 20 people and sickened and additional
7,000. A multitude of chemicals, including sulfuric acid, nitrogen
dioxide and fluoride poured into the air from U.S. Steel Corp.'s zinc
and steel mills. A layer of warm air formed over the top of a chilly
air near the ground and caused the pollutants to become trapped over
the city for five days.
