LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18) – Wind gusts up to 50 miles per hour created a big mess in the tailgate area outside of Kroger Field on Saturday night.

During UK Football’s game against Vanderbilt, the winds picked up and blew over a row of tents and even some TVs that were set up for tailgating festivities that went on before the game.

Chief Meteorologist Bill Meck said his tent was destroyed and it was even anchored to the ground.

Blue Grass Airport reported a peak gust of 52 mph before 9:00p.m.
