Our top 5 Videos of the Week capture an extreme week of weather. The strongest wind event of the season so far this year combined with bone-dry conditions lead to the creation of a fast-moving wildfire in Sonoma County, so far the largest of 2019.  WeatherNation’s Brandon Clement captures the fury of the Kincade Fire, burning since October 23.  The blaze has destroyed hundreds of buildings including homes and even a winery. https://youtu.be/7eh5LL2yroI In Southern California, an Extreme Red Flag Warning was issued for the first time in history as damaging winds helped spread and fuel destructive wildfires across the region.  Thousands of acres are still burning as the forecast continues to remain dry in these areas. [Related Article: Another Day of Critical Fire Weather] The same system that created the powerful winds in California also dumped up to feet of snow across Colorado.  This winter storm created a mess on the roads during multiple commutes during the workweek. [Related Article: Snow and cold for the Rockies and High Plains] On the other side of the country, a powerful cold front pushed through the Great Lakes, generating wild winds and surf on Lake Ontario.  Some of the highest wind gusts in the area were between 60-70 miles per hour and the biggest waves were between 18-20 feet! And finally, lightning struck the ground in Fort Worth, Texas and left behind a 15 foot hole!  This is a good reminder that when thunder roars, always go indoors!   Do you think you can top these Top 5?  Be sure to send us your best weather videos!  Share your best weather video with us on social media.  Find @WeatherNation on FacebookInstagram, or Twitter  for a chance to be featured in our weekly top 5.  (Read WeatherNation Terms of Service)
