WEST PITTSTON -- The Federal Aviation Administration said a plane did not drop toilet paper onto a home in West Pittston.

The FAA has completed its investigation after Paula Viccica said she saw debris coming from above and landing all over her property. She was gardening Monday morning when she saw the stuff come down.

“It's really strange to see this fall from the sky. You'd think it came from an airplane. How else did it come from the sky,” Viccica asks.

Even though the FAA said the debris did not come from a plane, officials there are trying to figure out where it did come from and how it landed all over her property, and even on top of roofs.

The FAA says if the paper came from a plane's bathroom, then it would have likely looked blue.  Now, Viccica’s left asking, where did it come from?

“It's just a mystery right now,” she says.

Monday morning did have strong wind patterns, according to Newswatch 16's Chief Meteorologist Tom Clark. So we asked him if the wind could have possibly thrown the debris from a bag of trash or a dumpster.

“Sunday night into Monday morning, we had winds over 40 miles per hour -- 43 here at the station -- so there could be strong winds, like a whirlwind that could have developed locally, that could have picked up some trash and carried it a distance,” Clark said.

Meanwhile, Viccica still wants to find exactly how this mess happened.

“I just hope they have some sort of answer but i don't think they will,” she said.
