A High Wind Warning has been issued for the Mighty Mac.

The Mackinac Bridge Authority issued the warning at 3:57 p.m. after gusting winds picked up in the Straits area.

The warning means that all drivers looking to cross the span need to take extra precautions and drop their speed to a maximum of 20 mph, turn on their four-way flashers and use the outside lane.

Examples of vehicles which are especially vulnerable to high winds are pickup trucks with campers, motor homes, vehicles pulling trailers and enclosed semi-truck trailers.
