Strong Winds in Juneau

January 2017

A prolonged bout of cold Taku winds buffeted Juneau between January 6 and 8, with widespread damage to roofs, blown down trees and the winds even pushed a shipping container into Gastineau Channel. Winds peaked at 94 mph at the Juneau’s downtown library and 78 mph at the Federal Building.
