Gusting winds, blowing dust close I-40 east of Flagstaff

FLAGSTAFF — Strong winds and low visibility have forced the closure of a 41-mile stretch of Interstate 40 in northern Arizona.

The Arizona Department of Public Safety says it was asked by state transportation officials at midmorning Friday to help close the interstate between Winona, which is just east of Flagstaff, and Winslow.

A good chunk of northern Arizona is under a high wind warning. The National Weather Service says a peak wind gust of 69 mph was recorded at 10 a.m in Winslow.

Citizen Online Archive, 2006-2009

This archive contains all the stories that appeared on the Tucson Citizen's website from mid-2006 to June 1, 2009.

In 2010, a power surge fried a server that contained all of videos linked to dozens of stories in this archive. Also, a server that contained all of the databases for dozens of stories was accidentally erased, so all of those links are broken as well. However, all of the text and photos that accompanied some stories have been preserved.
