Arizona Public Service said the storm knocked out power lines late Sunday in Buckeye, Arizona.

According to the National Weather Service, 50 miles per hour (80 kilometers per hour) winds created dust storms throughout the area.

State transportation officials temporarily closed a section of Interstate 10 near Casa Grande due to low visibility.

Officials are still trying to determine the amount of damaged caused in Buckeye.
