A little respite today from the wind... and we need that break.

Gusts well over 60 miles per hour were reported in several locations across the area with sustained speeds of over 50 miles per hour in places.

Trashcans and other debris were no match for all of that blowing including lots of dried corn husks blowing across roads and through parking lots like this one at the Hastings Wal-Mart.

Trees and light poles were swaying throughout the day and there was also lots of dust kicked up by the winds, creating visibility issues for drivers.
