Niagara Falls resident called police to ‘stop the wind from blowing’

Niagara Falls resident called police to 'stop the wind from blowing'High winds in Niagara Falls earlier this week led to an interesting interaction between the Niagara Falls Police Department and a late-night caller.

Apparently the howling winds got so loud at Niagara Falls on Tuesday night somebody decided they should call the cops in order to make it stop.

A police dispatcher notified surrounding officers that someone needed help with the pesky winds, according to recorded audio of the transmission.

“All cars be advised, someone called to see if the police could stop the wind from blowing so they could sleep,” the dispatcher told officers. “If any of you guys could do that, could you let me know?”

Here’s the audio, courtesy of The Action who posted it on Facebook.

A weather station registered gusts of 26 mph that night and just before 6 a.m., winds at the nearby Buffalo Niagara International Airport were gusting at 39 mph, according to the National Weather Service. At about 2 a.m., a gust of 58 mph was recorded at the airport.

No word on whether the police were able to stop the strong winds and let the caller sleep.
