Berryton Power Outages Caused by Weather


August 8, 2012 - Thunderstorm Wind

A significant downburst occurred near Forbes Field in South Topeka causing damage and power outages. The ASOS at Forbes Field measured a 79 mph wind gust while several residents and city officials also reported 70 to 80 mph winds. Several large trees were either uprooted or broken, and several street signs were damaged from this wind. The most significant damage occurred on US 75 where two tractor-trailers were overturned due to the high winds. Both big rigs struck other vehicles in the accident. One of the drivers of the two overturned trucks had to be extricated from the vehicle and sustained serious injuries.
