'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 6-inch water main break flooded a Kuhn's grocery store on Banksville Road early Monday morning.

The break occurred near the Pittsburgh store's loading dock, said Kuhn's president Joe Dentici. When the water level rose above the dock, more than 4 feet high, it started flooding the store, he said.

The store reopened just before noon after cleaning up and passing an inspection by the Allegheny County Health Department, Kuhn's advertising manager Dan Sakala said.

Crews restored service at 2 p.m., said Gary Lobaugh, spokesman for Penn American Water.
