Wind Gusts Push Over Trees In West Anchorage

Wind conditions in Anchorage were not predicted to be strong enough to cause damage today, but sporadic gusts fell at least two trees in the Turnagain neighborhood in west Anchorage. Water was seen seeping across Spenard road near Westchester Lagoon. Drivers should be cautious and on the look out for wind driven debris in roadways.
