High Winds in Ohio Topple Vietnam Wall Replica

An Ohio storm knocked down a 10,000-pound granite replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall.

The Blade of Toledo reports winds approaching 70 mph on Friday knocked over most sections of the 288-foot-long memorial. No one was hurt.

Wall manager Greg Welsh says it was the first time the replica, on display for a weekend festival, has ever gone down.

Volunteers worked for four hours to get the structure back up.
