Insurance Journal - An amateur weather station recorded a wind speed of 114 miles per hour during last week’s storm along the Alaska Range. The gust was recorded Sept. 17 in Dry Creek, a community 40 miles southeast of Delta Junction, which is the nearest location to obtain certified speeds. National Weather Service meteorologist John Lingaas told the Fairbanks Daily News-Miner that speeds recorded at such stations are not as reliable as those clocked at professional ones. But based on the damage, the reading might have been accurate, he said. “It was not the usual storm wind because it did so much damage,” Lingaas said. - Go To Story
