Sunday morning wind damage gives residents headaches

PASCO, Wash. —Sunday night's above-normal wind speeds made some messes for residents from Yakima to Walla Walla.

The storm peaked with gusts as high as 39 mph in some places.

Action News viewers sent in photos of downed trees, lawn furniture, and even a tipped over port-a-potty at the Benton City boat launch.

In Pasco, the wooden fence between Olivia Ainsworth's yard and her neighbors snapped at the base,

"I just heard what I thought was a crashing sound. I thought something was caught between the fence and our wall … I thought maybe a trash can had flown over, or maybe some toys from the neighbors yard."

Ainsworth said the fence at the rear of her yard was already reinforced, but the one they lost last night wasn't a concern because it's never shown signs of trouble.
