Are You Prepared For The Solar Eclipse in Pennsylvania?

Are You Prepared For The Solar Eclipse?

It has been 38 years since the last solar eclipse was seen in the United States and 99 years since the path crossed the entire continental United States.

Many people from all over the US are heading towards the path of totality, from Oregon, through 14 states, ending in South Carolina. Getting a chance to witness this once in a lifetime event has made this one of the busiest travel days of the year.

Those viewing from Harrisburg, Pennsylvania will witness a partial Solar Eclipse at 77% sun coverage.

Eclipse Begins: 1:17 pm

For those who plan to view the eclipse, here are some important safety tips to remember:

  • Do not look directly at the Eclipse without proper solar eclipse eye protection
  • Check the authenticity of the eclipse glasses prior to viewing
  • Throw away scratched or damaged glasses

  • Prepare for heavy traffic warnings, delays, and gas shortages in popular viewing destinations

Freeburn Law, Just Call The 7s- Because the Right Law Firm Makes a Real Difference

 

, , , , ,

I would like to thank Megan Harmon at Freeburn Law for doing a top notch job handling my case. My wife and I were very upset after an accident that caused harm to me due to a negligent driver running a stop sign and demolishing my wife’s vehicle. I lost use of my hand and missed some work due to my injuries. Megan handled my case with diligence, kept me informed and was always there when I had questions. The process was long but it was handled correctly and the outcome was worth it for us. Thanks again Megan and Freeburn Law!
