The winds started to pick up speed yesterday, and by today they arrvived with nearly hurricane force. Wind speeds were sustained in the 40-50 MPH range, and at one point the speed was recorded at 70 MPH. The rest of the state had high winds as well, but Gallup took the top honors, and the results were not all the surprising. A truck was blown over on I-40, a roof was blown off a home (and the owners are gone on vacation), and power poles snapped in Fort defiance, Ariz. Despite all the chaos, I did not hear of anybody being injured.
