Where my dad lives in Pittsburgh was near ground zero for a microburst (a weather pattern like a tornado that hits suddenly).

Zoom in on the map to the 50-ft scale. The giant tree in the upper left of the screen is down - the tree was about 100 feet tall. Most of the trees to the north of our back yard are down as well.

My dad is OK, and the house has some shingles and siding missing, but no major damage. A large iron and glass patio table was thrown into the next yard, and an iron chair was sent 400 feet down the street into another neighbor's yard.
