Nearly 90 mph Wind Gusts Recorded Near Hampton
HAMPTON, Iowa -- “That was the strongest wind we've seen in a long time” said Ray Murray. Murray lives on a quiet street in Hampton. That street was louder than usual Saturday morning when the nearby airport reported wind gusts up to nearly 90 miles per hour. “It just sounded like a lot of howling and stuff and then just all of a sudden a big boom, and I figured a transformer blew someplace until we came out and saw trucks coming up the road and we realized the neighbor's tree came down” said Murray
