Unless you were in your underground bunker waiting to see which world leader completely loses their mind first, you may have noticed a little bit of wind last Tuesday and Wednesday, April 5 and 6.

Consistent high winds, with even larger gusts rattled the area for almost 48 hours, causing minor to significant damage in Malta and around the county.

Shane Anderson, local agent for Farmers Union said, "I've had 18 wind claims in town so far, and expect a few more to come in, in the next couple of days."

The National Weather Service registered the peak wind of those hours in Malta at 75 mph.
