    Event Wind damage

    Additional notes

    The remnants of Hurricane Ike merged with a frontal boundary and swept through the Ohio Valley on Sunday, September 14.  An intense pressure gradient to the south of this system resulted in widespread winds gusts of 50 to 75 mph across much of Indiana, Ohio and northern Kentucky.  These winds persisted for several hours which caused very widespread damage with downed trees and power lines, damage to structures, and numerous structure fires.  The wind storm left over 1 million people without power across Wilmington's forecast area and resulted in 4 fatalities.

    A maximum wind gust of 69 miles per hour was recorded here at Rickenbacker Airport.
