Nebraska Dust Storms Come In With Gust Front

A wall of dust in south central Nebraska damages buildings and blows semis off I-80.

The National Weather Service reported zero visibility for drivers on the interstate at both Aurora and York, and issued a "Dust Storm Warning" with winds up to 85 mile an hour.

There are reports of damage to buildings, trees and power poles across Clay, Hamilton and York counties.

Major damage is reported at the Burwell Rodeo arena in Garfield County. It's the home of "Nebraska's Big Rodeo."

A listener tells KFAB Radio News it looks like part of the grandstand may be gone.

Later in the night, as the dust blew east, the National Weather Service reported dirt in some of the rain that fell across eastern Nebraska, Northwest Iowa, and South Dakota.
