DPS: Dusty conditions contribute to multiple accidents

Arizona DPS reported five crashes on Interstate 10 between Tucson and Phoenix due to dust storms.  Visibility is reduced to one mile, DPS officials said.

A Dust Storm Warning was in effect until 5 p.m. this afternoon. Storms that fired up in the afternoon west of Tucson quickly fell apart allowing strong winds to pick up a wall of dust and pushed it northward.

The attached picture was taken Tuesday afternoon in Eloy, between Tucson and Phoenix along Interstate 10, near Casa Grande. Reports of near zero visibility were reported with this storm.
