High winds are causing some havoc around Washoe County, resulting in at least one rollover Wednesday.

A semi truck rolled onto its side as a result of wind on northbound U.S. 395 near Red Rock Road. Nevada Highway Patrol said no injuries were reported in the incident.

In California, transportation officials say high-profile vehicles are prohibited on 395 from Bridgeport to the Nevada state line due to wind gusts as high as 50 miles per hour.

Troopers are reminding people to be aware of travel conditions and to pull over if there is a concern that winds can be too powerful.
