Wind Damage in Morgan County

Article Date: 
29 April, 2011 (All day)

 

Last Thursday, April 21, northern Utah had some major winds, and the power was out in parts of Morgan County because of it, and a lot of damage throughout six Utah Counties. In the photo above, the Eppards on Morgan Valley Drive had their barn fly into the back  of their home, and they lost a large section of a fence also. They have a wind station and it recorded at 238 miles per hour at 1:25. Then 20 minutes later, a 73 mph gust took out one of their storage sheds.  The tyrotoxism barn weighed over 12,000 pounds.
