LAS VEGAS (AP) — Gusty dry winds clocked as high as 77 mph at Red Rock Canyon and 60  mph near the Las Vegas Strip swept through southern Nevada on Tuesday, causing scattered power outages, uprooting trees, pulling roofs and awnings from buildings and delaying flights.

But beneath a fog of dust, no injuries or widespread damage have been reported.

NV Energy crews were working to restore power to about 1,300 electricity customers in neighborhoods in the Las Vegas Valley

Winds are expected to diminish in the coming days, with high temperatures just above 50 on Wednesday and into the 60s on Thursday.
