FedEx truck flipped by ferocious Texas wind

A storm chaser captured the moment that a FedEx truck fell prey to high wind gust in Texas this week.

The video was captured by storm chaser Blake Brown in Amarillo, Texas, on Wednesday, March 13.

MUST WATCH!
Insane day today.. Amarillo TX had winds sustained at 64 MPH for a bit and gusts to 80 MPH! Damage all around town, over 40 semi trucks blown over just in the Amarillo area. I was able to capture 2 trucks being blown over on Lakeside just north of I-40. Strong winds were being funneled through a pair of grain elevators which caused the trucks to tip over.

Brown’s video includes several more minutes of semi truck drivers struggling against the strong winds after the FedEx truck flips.
