A helicopter was forced to land just outside of Ridgway on Route 120 around 12:30 p.m. today.
Officials with West Penn say the helicopter was contracted to look for damage after yesterday’s storm.
We’re told the helicopter came in contact with a power line but the pilot was able to land in a nearby yard.
West Penn contracts the helicopters to trim trees and inspect hard to reach areas on a regular basis.
There were no injuries and no power outages.
