'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.

West Penn Power is trying to determine what caused 5,500 customers in Murrysville and Delmont to lose electrical service for several hours Sunday.

West Penn spokesman Rob Lombardo said he learned of the outage at 8:27 a.m., and the company restored power to everybody by 12:17 p.m. One customer reported losing service shortly after 6 a.m.

The cause was not immediately known. “We had a lot of high winds overnight,” he said.
