Breaking News!!: Needles, CA: Gusty winds and blowing dust causes power outage.

At around 11:15pm PT on Friday, July 25th, 2014, gusty winds and blowing dust moved across Needles, California causing a power outage to residents, businesses, motels and hotels, and a recreational vehicle (R.V.) park.

The affected area in Needles, California was from Needles Highway at Q Street to the west, the Burlington Northern Santa Fe (B.N.S.F.) Railroad tracks to the south, Jack Smith Park to the east, and up to the Colorado River.

As the power went out, the only light that shined over the power outage affected area was the lightning in the clouds all around Needles, California and Mohave Valley, Arizona.

City of Needles Utility Crews searched the power outage affected area to fix the problem as San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department vehicles patrolled the power outage affected area.

At around 12:12am PT on Saturday, July 26th, 2014, City of Needles Utility Crews restored power to the power outage affected area.

According to the National Weather Service, winds at 31 mph and gust at 39 mph were recorded at the Needles Airport on Friday, July 25th, 2014.

As morning came, the only spotted wind related damages were to an old gas station light that got twisted partly off, a few roofing shingles blown off of a few homes in the power outage affected area and palm tree branches blown all off of a few palm trees.

But at this moments, no reports of major damages, injuries, or deaths related to the gusty winds and blowing dust moved across Needles, California.
