High Winds Topple Gas Station Canopy In New Bedford

NEW BEDFORD (CBS) – The high winds that caused problems for firefighters in Scituate Thursday, also damaged a gas station in New Bedford.

The gusts were so strong that the canopy at the Sunoco on Durfee Street toppled over.

The canopy just missed a parked car at the pump. No one was injured.

Strong winds were a problem across much of the eastern part of the state with some gusts exceeding 55MPH.
