Wind warning on Bay Bridge

By Michael D. Bolden

The wind advisory in effect for the Washington region through 10 tonight may pose a danger for some vehicles traveling across the Bay Bridge.

State officials said a wind warning is in place on the bridge, a measure typically enacted when sustained wind speeds of 30 to 39 miles per hour are expected. Vehicles that are susceptible to being affected by high winds -- such as house trailers, box trailers, motorcycles and vehicles with roof-mounted racks containing cargo -- should use caution when traveling across the bridge.

However, officials report that traffic operations on the bridge are currently flowing normally.
