Pueblo County Sheriff/Emergency Manager Kirk M. Taylor, reported dozens of wind-related incidents throughout the city and county of Pueblo due to the strong winds and blowing snow and rain that has been ravaging the city and county of Pueblo since early afternoon.

Pueblo City Schools and Pueblo County District 70 officials, upon the recommendation of Sheriff Taylor, cancelled classes for Thursday due to the National Weather Service forecast for the strong winds to continue throughout the morning. Wind gusts are expected to be in excess of 40 mph with gusts as high as 75 mph. “School closure recommendations were not taken lightly but I would rather error on the side of caution when it comes to the safety of our children,” said Sheriff Taylor.

At approximately 1 p.m., calls began coming into the city and county 9-1-1 centers reporting downed power lines, residential alarms, uprooted trees, debris and structural damage as wind gusts reported up to 80 mph blew in Pueblo County. Black Hills energy has been responding to every report of power outage and has been able to restore service in a short time. San Isabel Electric company has reported no power outages so far in rural pueblo county.
