Minor Damaged Reported in Bridgeville Area After Severe Storm

A roof blew off a building at the Sihol Concrete complex in Bridgeville, but there were very few other reports of damage from the Wednesday morning storm. Temperatures are expected to cool off Thursday with a chance of snow accumulation

Only minor damaged was reported in the Bridgeville area after strong storms blew through western Pennsylvania shortly before noon Wednesday.

The most damage happened when a roof on one of the buildings at the Sihol Concrete complex in Bridgeville was blew off from the winds. Workers could be seen trying to fix the damage around noon.

However, Bridgeville police Chief Chad King said there was little damage elsewhere in the borough.

“We didn’t have any calls for the storm, which surprised me,” King said.

The storm only lasted a few minutes, but brought high winds and heavy rain.

That was enough to cause numerous branches to fall on some roads. The biggest problem area appeared to be Hickory Grade Road in South Fayette. Numerous tree branches were scattered in the road and even some trees were toppled on the shoulder.

Look below to see what the National Weather Service is predicting for rest of the week. There will be freezing temperatures and some snow accumulation over the next few days.
