Chris Behnke walks along the shore at Sandy Beach Sunday as strong winds whip up the channel waters. Behnke said he was walking close to the water to avoid being hit by flying sand. A high-wind warning was in effect until 6 a.m. today. Wind gusts as high as 70 mph were expected on south Douglas Island and in the Taku Inlet.
