FRAZIER PARK, CA (Wednesday, March 10, 2010, 5:30 p.m.)—Two community reporters used The Mountain Enterprise Breaking News website to report the following:
Matt Radis reports: On 3-10-10 I saw a modular home blown over on the freeway at 4:15 p.m. It was about a mile south of Vista del Lago on the North bound side [of Interstate 5]. It was blocking all lanes but traffic was moving on both shoulders.
Peter Bogdanoff sent his report with a photo: Here’s a cell pic of a modular home lying across 3 lanes of I-5 north at Pyramid Lake. It happened at about 4pm this afternoon. The wind was really whipping across the freeway from the north and blew it off the hitch of the vehicle towing it. I think it was through Libre Gulch. Cars were getting around it by going on the media to the left or the through the far right lane that was open. No one seemed to be hurt and there weren’t any other vehicles involved. We got there just after it happened. It’s going to be a mess for people coming home.
