New England Nor’easter Storm Shuts Power Off For Hundreds Of Thousands : NPR

A powerful nor’easter storm is pummeling the New England area with heavy rain, strong winds and floods, knocking out power to hundreds of thousands of people in several states Thursday morning.

The National Weather Service warns that winds from the storm may down trees and power lines and cause power outages. And the agency says people affected by the storm should secure loose outdoor items and be cautious when using portable generators.

In Maine, about 157,000 customers were without power as of 3:00 p.m. local time, according to Central Maine Power. Another state power provider reports an additional 29,000 power outages.

Man Charged with Threatening to Shoot Two Women in New Brighton – Beaver County Radio

Court officials say a Harmony Township man waived his preliminary hearing Friday on charges he threatened to shoot two women during a road-rage incident last month. It allegedly started near Tenth Avenue and Seventh Street in New Brighton with Natralia Matthews threatening to fight Kasey Mooney for something that happened on the road. Matthews left the scene only to return with Desmond Council, who reportedly had a handgun in his waistband when he threatened to slap the victims and said several times he would shoot them. Council has a trial date set for March 2nd in Beaver County Court.Source: Man Charged with Threatening to Shoot Two Women in New Brighton – Beaver County Radio

Pittsburgh International Airport To Auction Off Thousands Of Unclaimed ‘Lost And Found’ Items – CBS Pittsburgh

Thousands of items are left behind at the Pittsburgh International Airport each year, and this weekend, they’re up for auction.

The Allegheny County Airport Authority, which is in charge of the Pittsburgh International Airport and Allegheny County Airport, will host its annual public auction of abandoned vehicles and unclaimed items this Saturday, Oct. 19.

About 1,000 pieces of jewelry, 500 electronics and 15 abandoned vehicles will be up for auction.

The oldest car up for auction is a 1993 Ford Tempo with over 107,000 miles on it. The newest is a 2015 Dodge Ram with almost 114,000 miles on it.

Auction-goers will also be able to buy Airport Authority items like snowblowers and tires.

The airport says some of this year’s highlights include a Keurig, a rice maker, scuba equipment, a Kurt Cobain record and a label maker.

Not all lost items are sold. The airport says about 35 boxes of clothes have already gone to charity, and three boxes of prescription eyeglasses went to the Pittsburgh chapter of the Lions Club.

More than 10,000 items were collected in the airport’s “Lost and Found” and anything unclaimed by its owner is eligible to hit the auction block.

Doors open at 8:30 a.m. and the auction will kick-off at 10 a.m.

You can see a list of items up for auction here.

Pittsburgh-to-New York train to add baggage car for bikes | TribLIVE.com

Bicyclists can place their bike on a baggage car at select stations when taking the train from Pittsburgh to Philadelphia and onto New York, Amtrak said Monday.

Train stations in Pittsburgh, Johnstown, Altoona, Harrisburg, Lancaster and Philadelphia have been offering that service on the Pennsylvanian since earlier this month, but not at the Greensburg station, said Beth Toll, an Amtrak spokeswoman. Amtrak only offers the service at stations where it has an agent that checks the bags for passengers using the baggage car.

At stations like Greensburg, passengers cannot bring their bicycles onto the coach cars of the train, unless they are folding bikes that meet Amtrak’s size requirements, Toll said.

Penn Hills man found shot to death inside ransacked home

A Penn Hills man was found shot to death inside his home Wednesday evening after a report of a home invasion, police said.

The victim, identified by the medical examiner as 35-year-old Aaron Evans, was found dead when police responded to the 7200 block of Lawton Street a little after 6:15 p.m.

“We’re not sure exactly what happened inside the home, but we know he was forced back inside the home. At some point, he was shot,” county police Inspector Andrew Schurman said.

The house had been ransacked, and police said robbery appears to be a motive for the shooting.

“That’s something we’re trying to determine more definitively — what the motive was, and why he was selected,” Schurman said. “At this point, we have no reason to think he was randomly selected. There was something in his life that caused these men to show up and ransack his home.”

No suspects have been identified. Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to call county police at 1-833-ALL-TIPS (1-833-255-8477). Anonymous calls will be accepted.

California man shows up to Mt. Shasta police station with body in car

The suspect walked into a police station located more than 200 miles away from his Roseville, Calif., apartment, where three more victims were found.

A Northern California man has been arrested on suspicion of killing four people after he showed up at a police station with a body in his car.

Authorities in Mount  Shasta say the man walked into the lobby of the police department Monday afternoon and told officers he had killed four people at his apartment in Roseville, more than 200 miles away.

One of the possible victims was in his car, police say. Roseville police went to the suspect’s apartment and found three more.

Police say it appears the man knew the victims and don’t believe there’s any ongoing threat to the community.
