In October 1948, smothering mill fumes killed 20 people and sickened thousands in Donora, Washington County. This small-town Pennsylvania tragedy put the word “pollution” in the nation’s vocabulary and led to clean air laws that allow us all to breathe easier today. This Emmy-winning OnQ report includes rare historical images and compelling interviews with people who lived through the infamous “Donora Smog.”
