Some of the most significant damage happened to a cheerleading gym in McKeesport. The wind sheared off the building’s metal roof.

“It was crazy. I could hear it through the windows at my house,” Gavin Trimnal said. His sister is a cheerleader there. “My dad showed me a picture and I’m like, ‘How’d that even happen?’”

No one was inside when it happened.
