7436Re: Johnstown Tornado
- Jun 3, 2002The weather system that spawned the Johnstown Tornado stretched as
far west as Illinois. A tornado or strong microburst hit Pittsburgh
and Killed a young woman at KennyWood ( our big amusement park) when
it toppled the pavilion roof over one of the rides. 54 were injyred,
and some are still hopitalized.
Power is still off to thousands of homes scools are closed in some
areas and some roads are impassible due to fallen trees.
We were on vacation last week at Chautauqua, and decided not to come
home until Saturday because we were not done closing up the cottage
for the summer-otherwise we would have been arriving in town just as
the storm hit at 7:00 pm.
Are we thankful or what!
