Episode Narrative A strong cold front brought high winds to portions of Central and Eastern Washington. In addition, as the front approached the Spokane area extending south to the Palouse and Blue Mountains, thunderstorms developed resulting in even stronger wind gusts. Numerous power outages and down trees were reported during the storm. The trees damaged several cars and homes. A portion of the High School roof in Clarkston was blown off. A communications tower atop the Asotin County Jail was blown over. In Pullman, shingles were blown off of homes. One particular tree in Pullman landed on a portion of a home, destroying a collectable car, boat, travel trailer, and golf cart. Estimated damage from this report was $40,000. In Albion shingles were blown off the post office roof. In East Wenatchee the winds blew a carport 300 feet. The lightning was isolated so the event was entered as both a thunderstorm wind and high wind event. The exception to this was over the Palouse where the lightning was abundant. However winds prior to the front gusted to 60 miles per hour in Pullman. Wind gusts reported during the storm in miles per hour include: 85 in Pullman, 64 Wenatchee, 63 Uniontown, 59 Ephrata, and 58 in Beverly.
Event Narrative Large trees were uprooted in a park, as well as a tent structure blown over and wrapped around a tree. Part of a roof was also blown off a structure.
