Did you know?? When wind forces of 30 MPH or greater strike the side of a school bus, the forces can exceed 500 lbs. Wind forces can impact steering and tracking of buses in motion. This is true for sustained winds of 30 MPH or greater or wind gusts greater than 40 MPH.— School District of Pickens County (@PickensSchools) September 29, 2022
The Easley Citizen will continue to monitor and report any further updates.
