170 MPH Wind Gusts In New Hampshire


We get some strong winds here in KELOLAND, but the northeast part of the country is getting some strong winds of their own.

Forecasters recorded wind gusts of more than 170-miles an hour on Mount Washington in New Hampshire. That’s the strongest wind recorded in New Hampshire since 1985.

“My coffee mug was actually rattling on the table just from the vibration of the building here. The windows were kind of flexing back and forth from the pressure changes with the wind,” Mount Washington Observatory Meteorologist Tom Padham said. 

But don’t worry, the forecasters in the observatory are still safe.

The observatory can handle wind gusts of up to 300-miles an hour.
