By: KDKA-TV News Staff

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) - Thunderstorms rolled through the area on Sunday pretty quickly but left behind plenty of damage including downed trees, downed wires, and flooded roads.

Heavy rains and winds caused trees, light poles, and wires to come down in Cranberry Township, including a large light pole on I-79 southbound causing traffic to be reduced to one lane.

According to our own Ross Guidotti, luckily, no one was injured and no cars were struck by the downed pole.

The Adam's Ridge neighborhood in Butler County was hit particularly hard, with a tree coming down on Hespenheide Road.
