High Winds Could Hit Walla Walla Again

Posted: Updated:

WALLA WALLA, Wash.-- The winds are starting to pick up again in Walla Walla County.

On Monday evening wind speeds are about 20 to 30mph, but the highest number reached 51mph. There's still some visible damage from the wind storm from over a week ago.

Walla walla police and fire departments report no calls yet for power outages or fallen trees. But in case the winds hit again the fire department wants to remind people to stay safe and away from any down wires.

"We don't know if they're a power line or a tv or phone line but no matter what it is it might have a power line energizing it, so that's a very hazardous thing," said Captain Greg Van Donge, of the Walla Walla Fire Department.

In case the winds start up again fire crews are ready to help anyone who may need assistance. They say on the night of the big wind storm they kept busy and got over 100 calls from all over the county.
