'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

A flood-damaged house along Shadyside Drive in West Mifflin was the only weather-related problem reported in the area Tuesday night.

In McKeesport, an Allegheny County police officer directed traffic around a flooded lane of W. Fifth Avenue near the Elbow Room around 8 p.m.

Police in Munhall, Pleasant Hills, Versailles, Wilmerding, Whitaker, and North Versailles and Forward townships reported no weather problems.

West Penn Power officials said there were multiple outages in areas of Elizabeth, Elizabeth Township, Forward and south of Lincoln Way on the western end of North Huntingdon. An undetermined number of customers were affected. Service restoration was expected overnight. Duquesne Light released no information regarding outages as of presstime.

The National Weather Service said 1.4 inches of rain fell at Allegheny County Airport in the 24-hour period that ended at 9 p.m. on Tuesday.

A flash-flood warning for much of Western Pennsylvania is in effect through 6 a.m. Thursday.
