Social media reaction to strong winds in Seattle

Flags waved, stop lights swayed, trees toppled and trash cans rolled as strong winds hit Seattle Tuesday night and Wednesday morning, causing temporary power outages in some areas. Many followers described the wind as “howling” when we asked on Twitter and Facebook about neighborhood conditions.

“In Auburn, the wind and rain sound like a hurricane,” one reader tweeted. “Coming from a Florida native.”

More reactions are captured below.

The NOAA extended the wind advisory until 4 a.m. for Seattle, Tacoma and Bremerton, warning that more power outages are possible.
