Wind Damage in Area

Posted: Updated:

While the highest wind gusts hit just after midnight around the region, the wind stayed in the 40- to 50-mile per hour range much of the day.

And as the day wore on, people were finding what degree of damage that kind of wind can do.

Manager of The Landing Bar and Bottle Shop, Shauna Downing said an employee heard some strange sounds during peak wind conditions last night, though the cause did not become fully known until after sunrise.

(Shauna Downing, Manager, The Landing Bar and Bottle Shop) "The roof was laying in between the alley -er- in the alley between The Landing and the Super Pumper. And the electrical lights we put out for security were strung across the carwash over at Super Pumper and hanging down in the driveway. So we had to call the electrician to come and get those live wires out. And he said on top of the stuff that's laying in the alley, the other end of the building has also cut loose and its rolled over to the south end of the building."

Many establishments in Minot were effected by these extreme winds. Home owners' shingles blew off, leaving large patches in need of repair. A building under construction will surely need repairs before resuming. And the local Wendy's sign was blown out of its frame.

Lieutenant Steve Whitesell of the Minot Police Department encourages residents to be mindful of possible debris that they may leave outside their homes.
