      105 mph hurricane force gust at Carrier Dome

      As severe winds raced across Central New York on Tuesday evening, something record breaking happened at an iconic buidling in Syracuse.

      At the highest point of the Carrier Dome: 164 feet up, the wind sensors recorded the strongest wind gust in the history of The Dome.

      Sensors measured a wind gust at 10:40 p.m. at 105 mph. As things calmed down a bit, that reading dropped to an average of between 40 and 70 mph.

      CNYcentral Chief Meteorologist Wayne Mahar says, "It is a concern because that type of wind, just like a heavy wet snow in the winter, can damage the roof. That dome can rip, and when you see hurricane force winds this is something that we will monitor closely."
