BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Winds surpassing 60 mph caused damage and concerns across North Dakota.

The high winds on Tuesday damaged trees and caused power outages in the western part of the state, and prompted some oil rigs to shut down to ensure the safety of workers and equipment.

A golf course in Bismarck also closed. In the Minot area, the winds blew over trailers on U.S. Highway 83 and a semitrailer on U.S. 52.

Basin Electric Power Cooperative reported that some of its wind turbines shut down automatically because wind speeds surpassed a 55 mph limit.
