CometWeather Storm Coverage.

Significant thunderstorms have wracked the area.

Ch. 11 News reports a "juicy air mass" set off this storm.

A red alert of some kind was placed over Pittsburgh International Airport. There were reports of funnel clouds on the West End. The rain was coming down at 13 inches per hour.

Very strong and awkwardly "wafting" winds were prevalent over the Allegheny River, as we ourselves witnessed upon the 16th Street Bridge.

It appeared from our vantage that the Gulf Tower was struck by lightening. However, the lack of any spectacular aftermath suggests either a well-constructed lightening rod, or human error.

Mike Marcus from the Carnegie Science Center says the worst seems to be past us, but there's going to be a lot of cleanup.
