WEBER COUNTY, Utah — Northbound traffic on Interstate 15 near Brigham City was being directed off the freeway due to high winds and semi rollovers, Sunday afternoon, but by about 1:40 p.m. those lanes of traffic had re-opened.

A semitractor-trailer tipped at 10 a.m. on northbound I-15 near mile marker 365. A second semi tipped at 11 a.m. in southbound lanes and another tipped at 11:15 a.m.

There were no injuries, but the rollovers caused major backups, said Lt. Lee Perry of the Utah Highway Patrol.

Perry said northbound I-15 was closed and traffic was being directed off the freeway at exit 365 and redirected onto U.S. Highway 13. The Utah Department of Transportation tweeted at about 1:40 p.m. that the crash scenes had been cleared and lanes were open again.

Perry said troopers have experienced microburst winds. Six additional troopers were called out to help with traffic.
