Dust storm limits visibility in Phoenix area

Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX (AP) — Dust storms that blew through the Phoenix area and parts of southern Arizona reduced visibility to about 1 to 2 miles in some areas and prompted warnings to drivers traveling on two busy highways.

Earlier, the Arizona Department of Transportation and the National Weather Service urged those traveling in southeastern Arizona to drive with caution because of limited visibility.

The Department of Transportation also warned that those traveling along Interstates 10 and 8, south of Casa Grande, were to be affected most by the dust.
