What kind of wind gust would do this? At least hurricane strength I'm guessing.

 Quoting: New Age Scam Artist


High sitting vehicles like trucks are prone to flipping if the gust is strong enough. The wind catches under, especially if they're on a highway, going 60+ mph and the wind catching underneath. Makes for a scary time

Semi blown over in central Iowa, too. News said 68 mph wind, and not even in the strongest part of the storm.

Power poles down in West Des Moines, Iowa.

Trees down in central Iowa.

I'm holding on to my hat.

First-hand report from my other thread by a truck driver:

Hello Everyone,

Just drove through this 1 hour ago minutes before I-70 was closed. There was nearly ZERO visibility and literally police officers were RUNNING down the fucking interstate. People, fire trucks, RUNNING.

It is FUCKING BEDLAM. Major scary to drive through that. It's the weirdest orange, dark light. This was when the sun was out.

There is like billowing clouds of ash and smoke for hundreds of miles it looks like.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 74350685


WOW! Thanks for the report.
 Quoting: TrustNoOneKS


Your welcome. The worst part of all, and I am not kidding the wind is blowing here like 50 mph. You can barely even walk to the door to pay the attendant to get some gas.

There are 40 foot semi's upside down off the interstate. Down by Mittens outside Oakley an entire semi is just off an embankment.

It's almost impossible to drive in it. Of all the times for a fire to start---when wind like this is blowing.
