Power Poles Take a Tumble Wednesday Evening
06/17/2010

Snapped power pole at Western and Nevada looking west.

Liberal residents have their electricity back this morning after 77 mile per hour winds knocked power out in Liberal at about 9:15 Wednesday evening. The Seward County Emergency manager reported multiple power lines down in Liberal which left most of Liberal in the dark. Stop lights, restaurants, the hospital, Brent Gould Field during the BJ game, and most residences lost power. A morton building was blown down in town near 7th and Industrial. Liberal wasn't the only area to receive damaging winds. Stanton County Emergency Management reported two to three dozen power poles down in Stanton County due to downburst winds. Some tree were uprooted in Johnson. One vehicle was blown from a road into a culvert in Stanton County.

A cell tower buckled at the intersection of Highways 64 and 95 southwest of Eva in Texas County. Seventy mile per hour wind gusts were reported southwest of Sublette and southwest of Hayne last night.
