Hurricane Irene made landfall early Saturday morning and people from our area are already on the way to provide help in the relief efforts.
Hurricane Irene is pounding the East Coast. While the rain will not make its way to western Pennsylvania, the effects of the storm are already being felt.
Hurricane Irene is hundreds of miles away from Pittsburgh, but is still affecting the vacation plans of people from our area.
While Hurricane Irene is not expected to affect the Pittsburgh area, local emergency responders have been mobilized to help other areas on the east coast. About 15 to 20 Swiftwater rescue teams are going towards Harrisburg, Philadelphia and the Jersey Shore.
