It was windy yesterday, duh! But as we have now seen the stats on just how windy it was, it's rather stunning that we all didn't blow away!
Hurricane-force winds are defined as more than 74 miles per hour. Yesterday winds were as high as 89 miles per hour in parts of Colorado.
Trees fell into numerous major streets and onto houses.
Wind gusts have reached up to 89mph in today's wind event. Numerous trees have been uprooted, many people are without power, and roads have been closed due to vehicles being blown over. Winds will begin to subside this evening. Here is a summary of the highest gusts. #cowx pic.twitter.com/FAxsrZ5DFX— NWS Boulder (@NWSBoulder) April 17, 2018
