One Of The Worst High Wind Events/Dust Storms In Years.

Numerous reports of damage from Sunday's high winds have been received up and down the Pecos Valley (Roswell-Artesia-Carlsbad areas). At least one semi tractor trailer truck was blown over north of Carlsbad on US Hwy 285 at mile marker #39.

Utility and power lines were blown down, power poles blown down, roof damage including partial roofs blown off, trees and tree limbs blown down, road signs blown down, sheds and barns damaged, fences damaged, and at least one report of an agriculture irrigation sprinkler system blown away. Widespread power outages occurred in the Cloudcroft and Timberon areas with scattered power outages noted in the Pecos Valley.

A large area of widespread blowing dust moved northeastward from northern Old Mexico and southern New Mexico into Southeastern New Mexico, and West Texas Sunday afternoon. Widespread visibilities of less than 3 miles were common. Many areas experienced visibility drops to zero in blinding brownouts during the highest wind gusts. Dust Storm Warnings and Dust Storm Advisories were issued for much of the local area. 

For those of you (like me) who are old enough to remember the high winds and dust storms of the 1960's, 1970's, and the 1980's (some of you the 1950's) then you remember that events like this were fairly common.
