LAS VEGAS (AP) — Gusts and dust diminished and airport operations are back to normal in Las Vegas, a day after a cold front brought winds clocked as high as 85 mph in rural Pahrump and 63 mph near the Las Vegas Strip.

Workers are repairing collapsed tents Wednesday at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway, while homeowners remove uprooted trees and building managers repair office awnings.

No serious injuries or widespread damage are reported.

NV Energy says electricity has been restored to all but about 20 of the thousands of customers whose power went out during the Tuesday storm.

The American Red Cross helped one family forced out of their home after a tree crashed through their roof.

The National Weather Service says winds will continue Wednesday, with temperatures in the 50s.
