Alex, 
Thanks for providing the air pollution updates. 

Unfortunately, in the midst of this high PM2.5 pollution episode, the
Dearborn monitor -- which frequently has very high levels of fine
particle pollution, and has the state's highest 3-year average for
PM-2.5 -- has not been registering any data. Based on the levels at
nearby Allen Park monitor, it seems fair to assume that Dearborn is at
"Code Orange" too.
