Re: [World] two high rise incidents in Denver

Winds can be tricky around high rises. What may be a mild wind on one side of the building can become strong as it flows around the corner. Some buildings block the wind, others create a funnel effect increasing the velocity. Heat from the building also tends to create updrafts.  I recall working in a high rise office and seeing the snow flying straight up.
