Hurricane Level Winds Recorded in Utah


You would think that being inland would prevent hurricane-like weather from reaching Utah.

Although not near the ocean, the Beehive State is experiencing a windstorm with unofficial reports of gusts up to 112 MPH! Based on wind-speed, that is the equivalent of a Category Two hurricane.

Even without a storm surge, the wind is causing widespread damage. According to KSL, 45 semi-trucks have toppled over due to the wind storm, a new record for Utah. An emergency order is expected to be announced according to Lt. Governor Spencer Cox.
