TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV)–Wednesday high wind warnings were issued and were in affect until 9 pm that evening. Wind speeds up to 35 mph and gust up to 60 mphmade travel very hard for some due to debris being blown onto roadways.
Winds of this strength can also cause larger vehicles like semis to move unexpectedly on the roadways.
Reports south of Terre Haute of debris in the road included tree branches, trash cans and even a trampoline.
State police and local law enforcement are advising drivers to slow down and if possible to take less traveled roads until the warning expires.
For those planning to be airborne for thanksgiving travel, expect some turbulence. Although these winds are not likely to ground your flight, it could make for a bumpy ride.
Advice from local pilot and chief flight instructor Katelyn Griffin, “buckle up extra tight.”
Thursday’s winds will still be gusting, but not as strong as Wednesdays winds.
