SLIDESHOW: Winds damage Modern Woodman ferris wheel

High winds gusting to 60 miles per hour last Friday, Feb. 19 sent gondolas swinging on the Modern Woodman Park ferris wheel.

Damage was caused to at least five of the 20 gondolas, one of which had to be removed because of significant damage.

Plexi-glass was damaged and some scrapes were made to the gondolas, but the attraction is still set to open in May.

This year the gondolas were covered in tarps for the winter season, unlike last year when they were removed all together.
