Windy Weather Knocks Manufactured Home off Highway near Prosser

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash. -- Wicked winds wreaked havoc all over the Tri-Cities Monday, and it started bright and early along Interstate 82 at milepost 103 in Kennewick, when a big gust knocked a manufactured home off it's frame. It landed upside down on it's roof.

The Merlotte's half of a double-wide left HWY395 was on its way to Mattawa. The owner said the manufactured home is a complete loss but the driver was not injured. Washington State Patrol Lt. Mike Saunders said the driver was not to blame for this and did everything correctly. "We've had semis that have blown over when they're empty because of heavy wind gusts. Just something to consider, but a lot of them might be traveling through the area and may not be familiar with the climate around here and it may be kind of a surprise to them when it happens," he said.

Washington Department of Transportation issued a wide load restriction shortly after the wreck. It goes from milepost 82 near Prosser to milepost 132 near the Oregon state line.
