The Tri-State is under a Wind Advisory until 6pm tonight, but how strong is the wind exactly? Just ask this light pole...

I saw this photo on Facebook earlier. The wind is so strong in Evansville that it snapped this street light pole on the corner of Morgan Avenue and Stockwell Road. How crazy is that? If you have found any other damaged caused by the wind today, please share your photos with us!
