The wind certainly made a presence last weekend across North Dakota and northwestern Minnesota. Last Saturday and Sunday had Wind Advisories across numerous counties with wind gusts reported over 45 mph. The winds resulted in damage across the area, along with injuring three children in Grafton, ND when an inflatable playhouse was flipped over. Here are some viewer photos from last weekend of wind damage and other various photos.

Kellen Peters
Kellen joined the WDAY Weather team in March 2014. In December 2013, he earned a Bachelors of Science degree in Atmospheric Sciences from the University of North Dakota. While he was there, he did his Undergraduate research on peoples’ reactions and effectiveness of Tornado sirens compared to Wireless Emergency Alerts (WEAs). After his junior year, he interned at WeatherNation, where he worked as a weather producer. Kellen is a native of Woodbury, MN. He says, “Unlike most meteorologists, I was terrified of the weather as young kid- the movie ‘Twister’ did not fair me well. I later turned that fear into a passion and the rest is history.”  When he isn’t keeping an eye on the weather, you can find him staying active outdoors and cheering on UND hockey and football.
