Stormy winds overturn trucks in the Mojave Desert, California

Stormy wind gusts of up to 130 Kmh (60 mph) overturned at least 15 trucks in the Mojave Desert, Arizona.

The hurricane-like winds lifted dust and sand into the air resulting in almost zero visibility on Routes 14 and 58 passing through the desert.
