Drivers on I-10 stranded by dust storm


A fast moving dust storm caused poor visibility along Interstate 10 near Casa Grande Wednesday afternoon.
Drivers such as Will Metteba were forced to make a pit stop due to the blowing dust.

"It got pretty bad," said Metteba. "I couldn't see except for about 20 feet in front of you."
Around 4 p.m., the winds kicked up and dropped the visibility to practically zero along I-10 near Casa Blanca Road.

Instead of continuing on their way, many drivers chose to pull over to the side of the road and wait.

"Conditions were bad," said Metteba. "It was just bad."

A rain storm eventually moved in and knocked down the dust allowing drivers to continue to their destinations.

No accidents were reported due to the dust storm.
