WILCOX, Ariz. (AP) - Authorities say severe dust storms have forced the closure of Interstate 10 in southeastern Arizona near the New Mexico border.
The Arizona Department of Transportation closed I-10 eastbound Wednesday afternoon a few miles east of Wilcox.
That was after the New Mexico Department of Transportation closed a 112-mile stretch of I-10 from Lordsburg to Las Cruces because of severe dust storms.
ADOT officials say there's no immediate timetable for when the closed sections of the interstate would reopen.
