60-Mile-Per-Hour Wind Rocks Salina

KSAL StaffJanuary 26, 2014

60-mile-per-hour wind that rolled through Salina caused some headaches Sunday evening.

A powerful cold front brought very strong wind just after 6:00. At 6:10 the National Weather Service clocked a 60 mph gust at the Salina Municipal Airport.

The wind blew down limbs, trees, and powerlines.

Powerlines fell across Intersrate 135 between Schilling and Water Well Roads. A grass fire in the median quickly spread. Firefighters were able to contain it before it did any serious damage.

The downed lines caused power outages in portions of South Salina. Officers directed traffic around a close section of I 135 between Water Well and Schilling Road.

There were also seveal acccidents along Interstate 135.
