TRI-CITIES, WA - A busy morning for animal control after last night's wind storm.  Lots of pets go missing in wild weather including one Richland man who lost his dog after his fence blew down.

Thankfully that husky named Loki was found Wednesday afternoon.

During storms many pets get spooked  Angela Ziller  at the Tri-Cities Animal Shelter said "my first recommendation is  that if you know if a wind storm is coming that you make sure your animals are not being kept in an outdoor enclosure and keep them inside some place safe and secure."

Ziller also says if your dog does get out during severe weather, you should call animal control because the animal may be afraid and is unpredictable.
