'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.

Despite a good deal of flooding to its south, Penn Hills escaped with few storm-related issues on Wednesday morning, according to public-works head Gerry Nosal.

“We had flooding in two locations — on Rodi Road (by the Sunoco station on the 600 block) we had some standing water, but it wasn't enough for them to shut the road down,” Nosal said.

Additionally, the storm left standing water near St. Susanna Parish on the 200 block of Stotler Road, but that road did not close, either.

Nosal said his department also dealt with downed trees on Lott Road and Glendale Road near its intersection with Hochberg Road.

“We fared pretty well,” Nosal said. “We cleaned basins in the morning before the storm hit.

“We wanted to try and be proactive.”

A flash-flood warning issued by the National Weather Service is set to expire at 1:15 p.m. on Wednesday for Allegheny County. Weather.com is forecasting scattered thunderstorms Wednesday evening with a 60 percent chance of additional rain.
