A bit breezy: Wyoming road sign incorrectly warns drivers about gusts of more than 355 mph
CASPER, Wyo. - It's windy in Wyoming, but still. Gusts of 355 mph and more?
That's what one electronic road sign said in Casper on Saturday. The Wyoming Department of Transportation says a sign operator working from Cheyenne meant to type "35+" but mistakenly added another 5.
The Casper Star-Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/LU016c) the inflated wind gust message was posted for 17 minutes before the department noticed the mistake and corrected it.
The whirlwind on social media lasted longer.
One person posted a photo of the sign with the comment "CASPER WY. WHERE TORNADO ALLEY SEEMS PLEASANTLY BREEZY."
