A dust storm and high winds struck the Boise area on Tuesday evening - resulting in a "major" emergency alert from the National Weather Service.
“Be ready for a sudden drop to zero sight. Pull aside, stay alive! ”Read the warning.
The dust storm warning began at 7.14 p.m. It included Ada County, Southwest Boise County, Payette County, Canyon County, and Southwest Gem County. The warning lasted until 7.45 p.m. At that time, high winds and dust hit East Boise.
At 7:12 p.m., a wall of dust was moving at 80 km / h in the western Treasure Valley, according to the NWS. The wind exceeded 60 miles an hour. Interstate 84 was expected to have low visibility.
Idaho Power reported "multiple weather-related outages across Treasure Valley." Outages are usually reported on the Idaho Power outage map, but the company posted on its website that it "had technical difficulties with the outage map." A phone record told callers that approximately 1,130 customers were without power.
Strong winds were expected all day, and the storm is the prelude to another rare event coming this weekend - a wave of abnormally high temperatures.
