(Terril)-- West wind gusting to nearly 50 mph at times has been making life difficult for drivers of high profile vehicles today (Fri.). A strong gust caused a semi trailer to jackknife this (Fri.) morning on Dickinson County Road N-14 north of Terril, shutting down the road in that area.

Authorities say the driver of the rig wasn’t hurt.

A high wind warning was in effect for most of the region this (Fri.) morning. It expired at noon but was replaced with a wind advisory. While the wind should diminish a little this afternoon, forecasters say gusts will still exceed 40 mph.
