Dust Storm And Wrecks Close I-10

Disaster yesterday afternoon when blowing dust led to three different, multi-vehicle wrecks on I-10 between Phoenix and Tucson. There was at least one fatality and numerous injuries, as the crashes shut down the Interstate. The short wave and front crossing the state were strong enough to generate the dust storm, as winds gusted 30 to 50+ mph.. At top is aerial view of one of the wrecks and at bottom is view of the dust-filled boundary layer north of Kitt Peak at 3 pm MST yesterday.
