DELMONT, Pa. —An intense storm brought down at least one tree along Rose Court in Delmont, Westmoreland County.
The incident happened Wednesday night.The tree came down on a garage.
“There’s a couch in storage upstairs and they said the bulk of the tree landed across the couch and that supported the weight of the tree and saved pretty much the rest of the garage,” said homeowner Lou Garbin.

JUPITER, Fla. – At least five people have died in the Abaco Islands in the wake of Hurricane Dorian, Bahamas Prime Minister Hubert Minnis said Monday evening.
Hurricane Dorian continues to pound the region as a Category 4 storm.
Minnis said that there are also people in Great Bahama island in serious distress. Rescue crews will respond to calls for help as soon as weather conditions allow.
“We are in the midst of a historic tragedy,” Minnis said.
Historic Hurricane Dorian stalled over the northern Bahamas on Monday, pounding the islands with heavy rains, storm surge and howling winds before the storm directs its rage toward the U.S. coast.
The PGA Tour said that two lightning strikes hit East Lake Golf Club at 4:45 p.m. ET, 28 minutes after the third round was suspended due to thunderstorms in the area. The Tour said that a tree in the area between the practice range, the 15th green and the 16th tee “was hit and debris from that strike injured four people.”
The Tour added that six fans were taken from the course in ambulances for further medical attention. Atlanta Police spokesman James H. White III said the six had sought shelter beneath the tree that was struck by lightning. He said they were taken to hospitals for further treatment, all of them alert, conscious and breathing.
An 18-year-old was found shot multiple times in the torso. He was taken to a local hospital and is in critical condition.
According to police, the investigation shows the victim was in the area when an unknown person or persons started firing shots at him.
Approximately eight shots were fired.
The melt season generally starts in late May and lasts until the end of August, but in 2019, the season started at the beginning of May. Ruth Mottram, of the Danish Meteorological Institute, attributes the sheet melting “persistently” the last four months to record high temperatures, according to CNN.
“It appears through history that when we have a wet winter or spring, these things build up often down below Laughlin and even into Arizona,” Jeff Knight, an entomologist with the Nevada Department of Agriculture, said on Thursday.
“We’ll have flights about this time of the year, migrations, and they’ll move northward,” he added.
This year, the Las Vegas area recorded more rain in six months than the annual average of just under 4.2 inches per year.
The speed and extent of current global warming exceeds any similar event in the past 2,000 years, researchers say.
They show that famous historic events like the “Little Ice Age” don’t compare with the scale of warming seen over the last century.
The research suggests that the current warming rate is higher than any observed previously.
The scientists say it shows many of the arguments used by climate sceptics are no longer valid.
Lightning struck at a Florida beach on Sunday, leaving eight people injured, police said.
The victims were struck at Clearwater Beach near Tampa on Sunday afternoon, according to the Clearwater Police Department.
The department said one person was hit by the strike directly and rushed to a nearby hospital in critical condition. Another person was treated for burns and three others were hospitalized as a precaution.
Some 10,000 Con Edison customers were sweating it out without power as of 6 p.m. Sunday, an outage map provided by the power company showed.
The number was a fraction of that just an hour before, but swathes of Brooklyn began losing electricity just after 5 p.m. — when the heat index reached a blistering 102, according to the National Weather Service, and The Post measured 113 degrees in Times Square.
As a heat wave expands over much of the eastern two-thirds of the nation, the northeastern United States will share in the summer swelter with record highs, the hottest weather so far in 2019, and AccuWeather RealFeel® Temperatures well above 100 F.
While temperatures may be briefly held back in areas that receive a thorough drenching as Barry moves through into Thursday, intense July sunshine, combined with a northward retreat of the jet stream will allow an impressive heat wave to build even for midsummer standards.
In the northern U.S., a heat wave is generally that which brings three or more days in a row with highs of 90 F.
“The combination of sunshine, temperature, humidity levels and other factors will push AccuWeather RealFeel® Temperatures well into the danger level past 105 degrees during the late morning and afternoon hours,” according to AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Brett Anderson.
