So What's Left of Sandy for Pittsburgh?

Moon Township fire chief said the storm was 'less than expected.'

The worst of "frankenstorm" is over—the late season Hurricane Sandy, which threatened high winds and flooding, has passed over much of the Northeast, leaving a trail of drizzly weather for the upcoming week. 

Moon Fire Chief John Scott said the storm was "less than what we expected." 

"We had some downed trees that the public works crews removed," Scott said. "There have been some power outages; no roads are closed right now." 

Classes in the Montour and Moon Area school districts will resume tomorrow. Both districts cancelled school today due to inclement weather.
