(Harrisburg) -- For the second day in a row, the Department of Environmental Protection has designated an Air Quality Action Day for six midstate counties.
The alert is at the orange level, the second worst possible. DEP recommends those who are sensitive to air pollution, like those with asthma, should limit their time outdoors.
The alert includes Cumberland, Dauphin, Lancaster, Lebanon and York counties, plus Berks County in the Lehigh Valley.
Fine particulates, which come from vehicle, industry and household pollution, can reach higher levels when there's little wind. The problem is especially acute during cold weather.
