A sad and sobering occurrence of blowing dust and a resultant multi-fatality accident happened yesterday afternoon on I-10 between Lordsburg and the Arizona state line. Weak shower activity was in progress and it produced very strong outflow winds which raised dust off the Lordsburg playa. That dust significantly reduced visibility along that stretch of highway. In an instant six people lost their lives in a multi-vehicle accident which involved several cars and a semi-truck. The lesson here for the rest of us is to avoid that situation by getting off the highway when you see dust approaching. Please drive with a watchful eye for dust today. If you see dust ahead do not drive into it...assume it will become too thick to see beyond your hood. Give the dust 10 to 20 minutes to settle or move off the highway and then continue your travel. Not doing so could cost you your life.

Heavy Rains Fell Yesterday.

Heavy rainfall will also be possible, resulting in localized flash flooding. A Flash Flood Watch is in effect north of the Pecos, including all Eddy County, through Sunday afternoon
