'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.

This weekend, the Valley can expect the calm after the storm.

Sunny days in the mid-70s Saturday and Sunday after some brief storms Friday will be a sharp contrast to severe thunderstorms and heavy winds which caused havoc throughout the area Wednesday.

West Penn Power was still reporting late Thursday that a handful of outages were still lingering in Belle Vernon and Fallowfield Township.

Area residents were cleaning up Thursday from storm damage the evening before.

The heaviest of the storms hit the Valley during a one-hour period shortly before 6:30 p.m. Wednesday.

Heavy winds and lightning combined to do the most damage.

There were various trees downed during the storm, such as the one that fell on Weaver Street in Donora, bringing with it live electric wires.

Downed trees caused road blockages in various locations within Fallowfield Township, North Charleroi, Carroll Township and Monessen.

Wires were downed in Elizabeth Township.

Flash flooding was reported by Monessen Elementary Center. 6:25 p.m.

Lightning also caused damage, such as the bolt that struck a home at 725 Second St. in Monessen.
