Wild Wind.

Extreme winds tear through eastern Colorado on Tuesday. 

With wind gusts approaching 70 mph, and steady winds in the 45-55 mph range, travel is difficult, and several roads remain closed.

Hwy 40 / 287 is currently closed from Limon to Kit Carson, and Hwy 71 is closed from Limon to Ordway due to high winds, accidents and poor visibility.

I-70 was closed from Stratton to Burlington for a short while this morning due to visibility issues stemming from blowing dirt.

There have been two travel trailers blow over, and at least two tractor-trailer rigs blow over between Limon and Genoa.

We will post pictures here as they become available.
