On Friday the 13th, no less, in the year 2020, the folks who live in the area of South Pass between Lander and Farson found out what living a class 3 hurricane feels like.

The National Weather Service recorded winds of 119 mph at Atlantic City and along the South Pass area.

Andrea Kenney of Lander snapped a photo of a pickup that was blown off the road, along with its horse trailer.

Walt Olson who lives in the area the top a new home was blown away by the brisk winds and he snapped a photo of the remains the home.

The big blow hit at 5:52 p.m. as a storm system battered most of Wyoming.  Wind blew at 59 mph in my back yard.
