Extremely strong winds overspread the region on Monday March 29th 2021. South wind speeds gusted between 55 and 65 mph which downed trees, power poles along with ripping shingles off of roofs. In addition, strong winds and dry low levels resulted in volatile fire weather conditions with numerous large grass fires that were difficult to contain. The two largest fires were in northeast Reno County with one burning 600 acres and another around 300 acres.
