Dust Storm Causes Road Closure in Gray County

Due to the high winds, blowing dirt caused low visibility and some roads to close.

The Texas Department of Transportation closed southbound State Highway 70 at Farmed and Market Road 282 in Gray County.

Northbound 70 was closed at Loop 171.

Officials are advising the public to be aware of low visibility areas when it comes to blowing dust and the threat it can pose to public safety.
