West Virginia’s Senators Urge Appalachian Natural Gas Hub

US News reports: West Virginia’s U.S. senators are urging federal officials to consider building a major natural gas storage and distribution hub in the Appalachian region.

Sens. Joe Manchin and Shelley Moore

NYup reports: This summer is likely to be warmer than normal in Upstate New York, the Climate Prediction Center said today.
