ABC NewsBy GINGER ZEE and IVAN PEREIRA, ABC NEWS(NEW YORK) — The skies over the East Coast and South are going to be a bit dusty this weekend.A massive dust plume from the Sahara desert is already making its way through the southern part of the U.S. and will envelop cities between Texas and New York by Sunday.While the scope of the plume may seem large, it won’t produce a haboob — or low-level dust cloud — as the air layer will be between 5,000 and 20,000 feet in the atmosphere.Nevertheless, health experts say it still poses risks to people with respiratory problems. It can also cause sinus problems and itchy eyes, nose and throat for people who are sensitive to those symptoms.At the same time, the Saharan Air Layer will have a colorful effect on the horizon. The dust will affect the sunset and give the sky different shades of red during the end of the day.The Saharan Air Layer is transported westward by bursts of strong winds and tropical waves located in the central and western Atlantic Ocean. It typically peaks between June and August.The dust typically hits the Western Hemisphere every 3 to 5 days but it is usually in smaller encompassments. It also suppresses hurricane activity and development in the Atlantic Ocean.The dust plume covered the skies around the Caribbean earlier this week.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.

(iStock) Office landlords in New York, Chicago and San Francisco could be taking a hit in the next few years even if some companies lock in long-term leases.More companies are keeping their offices, but are downsizing those spaces to allow employees to work remotely part-time, according to data from VTS, first reported by the Wall Street Journal.The analysis shows that landlords are giving tenants discounts of up to 13 percent compared to rents in the first quarter of 2020. Firms are also looking at an average of about 10 percent less space than they were looking at in the first quarter of 2020.Even as more people are getting the Covid-19 vaccine, many employees are reluctant to return to the office. The U.S. office vacancy rate rose to 11.9 percent in the first quarter, according to the report, which cited data from CoStar.ADVERTISEMENTLandlords are willing to offer rent breaks to prevent vacancies from rising, but these rent discounts could lead to lower valuations of office buildings in major cities.One positive sign for office owners: Companies are still looking to secure long-term leases.Over 45 percent of the tenants negotiating with landlords are seeking to make commitments of at least seven years. That’s up from 34 percent in 2019, according to the report.[WSJ] — Keith Larsen Share via Shortlink Tags Commercial Real EstateManhattanoffice market

NEW SHARON – One of the two people killed in a shooting incident at a Hovey Road residence on Monday, termed a murder-suicide by the Maine State Police, also lost her parents in a murder-suicide incident in early 2018.Robert Dapolito, 55, and Jessica Dapolito, 42, were found dead at their home on the Hovey Road after state police responded to a well-being check on Monday morning. Maine State Police has since indicated that the New Sharon residents died as a result of a homicide-suicide. Police believe that Robert Dapolito murdered his long-time partner, Jessica Dapolito, and then shot himself.According to Facebook posts, Jessica Dapolito was the daughter of Thomas and Michelle Masse, residents of Temple that were also killed in a murder-suicide incident. According to police, on Jan. 9, 2018 Thomas Masse murdered his wife at their home on the Temple Road before killing himself. Thomas had called 911 with threats of suicide early that morning; the Maine State Police Tactical Team later discovered the deceased residents in their home. Each had died as a result of a single gunshot wound to the head.There appears to be another connection between the individuals that died as a result of Monday’s incident and domestic violence. While some details of the incident are still under investigation, MSP representative Katharine England said Thursday that police have confirmed a relationship between Robert Dapolito and Patrick Dapolito who is currently serving a 55-year prison sentence for murdering his wife in 2010.“We are still exploring the nature of that relationship,” England said.Per media reports, it is believed that the two men were brothers.
