Both Towns Under High Wind Warning for Thursday Morning

Gusts could reach 60 miles per hour on Thursday morning. The winds could bring down trees, tree limbs and send unsecured objects flying around town.

High winds are a serious concern for residents in Hamilton and Wenham on Thursday morning.

The National Weather Service has declared a High Wind Warning through 9 a.m. Thursday.

Gusts have reached 49 miles per hour on Thursday morning at Beverly Airport, which is partly in Wenham. That happened at about 4 a.m.

The winds could topple trees, knock off tree limbs and send unsecured objects flying around town. Power lines could also be cut, the Weather Service warns, with scattered outages possible.

Some small branches have come down on the roads in the two towns on Thursday. As of 7 a.m., National Grid reports no power outages in Hamilton and Wenham.

And the wild wind comes with rain and temperatures unusually warm into the 50s.

Looked like the sign at St. Paul's had been blown down. Lots of branches everywhere. We were very fortunate.
