The weather has seen many extremes in the state of Colorado over the last month, but the high winds today have forced one facility in the state to send out a word of caution.

According to the Facebook page for Fort Carson, officials at the facility are asking for everyone to shelter-in-place due to the high winds and adverse weather conditions. They state that blowing debris is making it a hazardous situation throughout the area.

There has already been reports of very strong winds throughout southern Colorado, with a gust at Pikes Peak registering 93 MPH and a gust of 101 MPH at Cheyenne Mountain Air Force Base.

The winds have also caused some very serious accidents throughout the region, including these shared via Twitter.
