        construction was destroyed by the winds. There were
        numerous reports of vehicles damaged by flying debris... and
        many automobile windshields were shattered. West wind gusts
        to 47 mph were recorded at Stapleton International Airport.
      In 2013... a storm system near The Four Corners region produced
