Pittsburgh Winter Storm February 2010

Road crews continue non stop the removal of snow this past weekend in Pittsburgh Pa. It was reported that Saturday into Sunday 911 emergency answered 15,000 calls regarding a variety of help issues. Reports of several fatal incidence's were reported one being of McKeesport, sadly involving a sixty year old man and his daughter, nineteen found dead in their home. Media stated they lost their electric and had a generator running in their home. Official believe they may have died from carbon monoxide due to lack ventilation within the home.

Pennsylvania National Guard arrived on the weekend to assist with time being of an essence due to another storm system moving into the area from the South late this morning "Tuesday" into Wednesday evening. The system is expected to start with freezing rain changing over to heavy snowfall by evening. Reports say that Wednesday the winds will pick-up to 25 mph creating the drifting of snow across road ways and making the twenty-degree temperature feel below zero. The amount of snowfall predicted for this storm is six to ten inches on top of the two feet already dropped from the recent snowfall. Although the majority of residents have had their power recently restored from the hundreds of thousands who were without Allegheny Power is still working around the clock for the thousands who are still in waiting and here we go again.
