Falling Tree Causes Damage in Salina Neighborhood

Jeremy BohnMay 17, 2019

Gusty winds have been causing havoc in central Kansas on Friday afternoon–including in Salina.

A large tree appears to have been toppled over in a central Salina neighborhood thanks to a strong wind gust.

The tree fell in the 600 block of Highland on early Friday afternoon and appears to have fallen on structures and vehicles in its path, causing an unknown amount of damage.

The National Weather Service observation at the Salina Regional Airport reports that winds have gust over 40 mph for most of the afternoon on Friday, including a gust of 44 mph around 2:30 p.m which is around the time the tree fell over.

The National Weather Service in Wichita issued a Wind Advisory for Ellsworth, Lincoln, McPherson and Saline counties earlier Friday afternoon and lasts until 7 p.m. tonight.

The National Weather Service is also keeping an eye on developing thunderstorms in west-central Kansas that at 5 p.m. Friday, aren’t severe, but have the potential to further intensify in central parts of Kansas.
