They're nothing new to him or his colleagues not only here in Narragansett bay. I'm sure up on the south shore closer to Boston. You know, they always confront the same thing. It's just dangerous and occasionally destructive. Now, fortunately Simone is. Don't always do what they're supposed to do with the vote, and we have some damage three boats toppled in the wind side by side by side. Like dominoes, Michael has learned in his career. You can always fix fiberglass in Fall River, Chris Beaumont WBZ Boston's NewsRadio.

Meteorologists say a wind gust atop mount Washington New Hampshire hit a record one hundred and seventy one miles an hour. That's the equivalent of a category five hurricane that. Gust beat the previous February record of a hundred and sixty six miles an hour that was set in one thousand nine hundred seventy two it was also the strongest wind recorded in any month on top of the mountain since one thousand nine hundred five forecasters say they're safe in the observatory for winds up to three hundred miles an hour. Although Mondays when did 'cause their windows to flex back and forth because of pressure changes on the mountain.
