LACROSSE, Kan. (AP) - Rush County authorities say winds that blew through LaCrosse were strong enough to knock over train cars sitting at a lumberyard.

The sheriff’s department says the strong winds Wednesday night pushed over six empty train cars near Main Street in LaCrosse. They were part of an empty train that stretched almost a mile into town.

No injuries were reported and no highways or roads were closed.

KWCH-TV reports (http://bit.ly/1lhOnjp ) winds were up to 80 mph when the derailment happened
