Parts of the northeastern United States have already received record-shattering rainfall this summer.  According to AccuWeather, the recent deluge has been on par with the type of rainfall that can be unleashed by a tropical storm or hurricane.  In Pennsylvania, Wilkes-Barre/Scranton International Airport had 4.34 inches of rain on Monday, which shattered the old record set in 1955.  The location received more rain in one day than what typically falls for the entire month of August.  Some locations have already recorded their wettest summer on record, including State College.

 

Veterans Appreciation Night will be Thursday, September 6th at Port Royal Speedway, honoring those who paid the ultimate price for our freedom.  The Pennsylvania Department of Military and Veterans Affairs van will be onsite.  The Fallen Heroes of the Mid-Atlantic States Memorial will be on display as well.  The memorial honors fallen heroes from the Iraq and Afghanistan conflicts.  There will also be the dedication of the Fallen Heroes Banner Project and Vietnam Veterans Commemoration Pinning Ceremony.  Former Chief of Staff of the U. S. Air Force, General Ronald R. Fogleman, will be the guest speaker.  The Master of Ceremonies will be Chuck Rhodes.  All veterans and their families are invited to attend.  Admission is free.  The event is from 5:30 to 8:00 pm at Port Royal Speedway.
