And one man was picked up and thrown against his car by the high winds. Wayne Colvin lost his hat when he was picked up by a strong wind and thrown against his 1991 Honda Accord in Atwater on Wednesday. "It picked me up off my feet, about a foot-and-a-half off the ground," Colvin said about the strong gust of wind. The hat had made it to a neighbor's yard across the street, where he later found it.
