After hearing of high wind gusts at Rocky Flats, Colorado, WeatherNation’s affiliate 9NEWS reporter Noel Brennan and Photographer Scott Wright decided to set up their morning live shot near there. Their goal was to catch blizzard conditions rolling through the state Tuesday morning. They definitely got what they wanted. In the video, you can see the reporter has a hard time keeping his balance against the wind and the photographer has to hold the camera from toppling over. You can also see a dangerous situation unfolding as debris began to sail behind them. A large, rectangular sign had come loose from a pole and blew across the intersection. Wind gusts in that area measured over 100 mph around 7:20am Tuesday.
