Ligonier Beach closing permanently | WPXI

A staple in Ligonier Township is shutting down for good.

“It’s a historic site, been around since 1925. It’s had big names that sang there and played there so it is a surprise and it’s something we were just as surprised as anybody,” Ligoneir Township Manager Terry Carcella said.

In its heyday, it attracted the likes of Dean Martin and Perry Como.

While some neighbors would like to see it return as is, the future remains uncertain.

NOAA Expects Hurricane Season For 2018 To Be Near Or Above Normal : The Two-Way : NPR

After a devastating 2017 hurricane season, the Atlantic isn’t likely to get a break this year, NOAA says. The agency predicts 10 to 16 named storms this season, including up to four major hurricanes.

The Atlantic hurricane season runs from June 1 to Nov. 30. Overall, the season will likely be normal or somewhat more intense than normal, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration says, with a 25 percent chance that hurricane activity will be below normal.

Last year’s hurricane season was one of the most active on record.
