NEWPORT, Ore. – High winds ripped through the Oregon Coast Saturday with some peak gusts hitting nearly 80 mph.

The winds ripped through a tent that was set up for next week’s Newport Seafood & Wine Festival, scattering canvas and the supporting structure over a wide area.

Festival organizers were assessing the damage and said they would be able to restore the tent in time for the festival.
