Weather Being Blamed For Incident At Pendleton County Fair
It now appears that a gust of wind blew a ride, or part of a ride, off its base, injuring one person. The extent of the person's injuries is not known at this time.
Like much of western Virginia and eastern West Virginia, the area where the fair is located, near Circleville, has had severe thunderstorms tonight, some of which have included strong winds.
