Major dust storm closes roads

October 27, 2009--A major dust storm yesterday closed roads, caused accidents and resulted in warnings.  Kings County saw gusts of up to 43 mph while wind speed in Fresno hit 27 mph.  After a big rig collision Tuesday morning the CHP closed Avenue 71/2 at road 9 to Avenue 7 in Madera County.  The driver of the truck and at least two others were reported injured.

In Kings County CHP officers called for the help of the Lemoore Naval Air Station for the use of water trucks to reduce the dust.  Near Buttonwillow in Kern County winds forced the closure of State Route 119 from Interstate 5 to State Route 43.  In Fresno police reported malfunctioning traffic signals at several locations throughout the city.

After the multi-fatality collision in Kern county 2 weeks ago which killed at least 3 and involved 11 vehicles in a massive dust storm, officials are using great caution.
