A wind storm whipped through Anchorage last week and caused all sorts of damage. My father-in-law was there a couple days ago and took some pictures. I've put them up on my website. Click the link below and go to the Alaska page!

That's really too bad - I've never seen so many seaplanes assembled in one area, and to see so many damaged...it looks like there are going to be some pretty busy A&Ps up in that area.

I tried finding something about the storm in the Anchorage Daily News website, but no such luck. My brother-in-law lives in Anchorage and he said the news was reporting stage I hurricane force winds (what's that 90 kts or so?).

Bummer, eh? My in-laws are good friends with the owner of the Helio with the 185 stacked on top. ugh.

I saw something on the Weather Channel (I think on sunday, not totally sure though) about this wind storm. I think the lady said winds of 80+. They had video of some planes, some on top of each other and most turned upside down. I feel bed for those plane owners.

The controllers at Anchorage abandoned the tower after 109mph gusts. The winds were blowing constantly around 70 all night.
