Social Waves Studio Sends Thoughts to Struggling Philadelphia Residents Amid Poor Air Quality

Updated: Jul 6, 2023

The city of Philadelphia and its neighboring areas have been grappling with the consequences of hazardous smoke from the Canadian wildfires. With air quality alerts in effect and pollution levels reaching alarming heights, the well-being of the general population, especially vulnerable groups, has become a major concern.


Air Quality Alerts and the Impact on Philadelphia: According to a recent article from 6abc Watch Live, a Code Red Air Quality Alert has been issued for southeast Pennsylvania and Delaware, while New Jersey is under a Code Orange. These alerts signify that the air pollution concentrations have reached levels that are deemed unhealthy for both the general population and sensitive groups. Individuals are advised to limit their outdoor activities and take precautions, especially those who suffer from asthma, heart or lung disease, as well as children and the elderly.


The Effects on Transportation: The severity of the situation was evident when the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) temporarily halted flights bound for Philadelphia International Airport due to low visibility caused by the dense smoke. This disruption impacted not only travelers but also highlighted the gravity of the air quality issue in the region.
