Serious Damaging Wind Threat

If you live in or near the purple hatched area, there is a serious risk of thunderstorm-generated wind gusts of 75 mph or higher (similar to what occurred in Minnesota yesterday) that could cause widespread power failures. Please consider:

  • Filling your car's tank with fuel
  • Get a little extra cash from the ATM
  • Make sure your cell phone/computer are charged
  • Fresh batteries for the weather radio
  • Make sure children and infirm friends and relatives are considered
In the area centered around the Mississippi River, there is a good chance of wind gusts (downbursts) to 60 mph but they are not expected to be as severe or as widespread.
