Episode Narrative A fast moving arctic front swept across the area February 10th. In its wake, very strong west winds and wind gusts ensued over the area. Each county in southwest Virginia received wind damage. These high winds also touched off several wildfires. Three of the largest wildfires were Little Cuba (2700 acres) in Craig County, Black Horse (1500 acres) in Bedford County, and Green Ridge Mountain (about 4000 acres) in Roanoke County. Despite the size of these fires, no personal property was damaged or destroyed.
Event Narrative Winds gusted to 58 mph at an automated weather station in Wytheville. A tin roof, along with a few two by fours were torn off a barn 10 miles north of Wytheville.
