A damaging wind event blew its way into town early Sunday morning wreaking havoc to anything that dared cross its path. The system moved in from the west bringing wind speeds that measured 60-80 miles per hour, with Newcastle seeing the highest winds recorded that night 83-86 mph. According to a Mesonet meteorologist damage from straight-line wind gusts can be equivalent to that caused by a weak tornado. When the sun rose the next morning several residents were met with damage to their properties. Photos provided
