‘Dust Bowl’ winds hit tornado-devastated western United States -Breaking


By Rich McKay

(Reuters). A freakish wind storm brought “Dust Bowl”, or tornado-like conditions, to the Great Plains region and Upper Midwest. It was less than a week since a swarming thunderstorm of strong tornadoes decimated Kentucky, four states and other countries.

Unseasonably warm temperatures in Nebraska, Iowa, and Minnesota caused the low pressure wind system to cause power outages across four states in America, including Colorado, where more than 100,000 people and businesses were affected by it by Wednesday night.

In an advisory, National Weather Service stated that the storm system could bring down snowstorms in the region.

Marc Chenard from the Weather Prediction Center at College Park in Maryland, said that “Dust Bowl” conditions were historic and there was no visibility in New Mexico or Colorado.

Chenard declared that Chenard called it “highly unusual”. Chenard stated that the vehicle is moving east, which is quite unusual in such a large area. He said it would be passing through Michigan, Great Lakes, and Canada on Thursday morning.

At least 74 people died in Kentucky, and fourteen others were injured in the tornado that struck the Great Plains of America and other parts of the South on Friday night and Saturday morning.

On Wednesday, President Joe Biden visited devastated communities.

In its forecast, the National Weather Service stated that strong winds would increase overnight Wednesday to race through the Upper Midwest and into Canada on Thursday.

The weather service stated that “Blowing dust will likely be seen throughout the area” and warned of power outages. Extremely critical fire weather also exists in this evening, from the north Texas Panhandle to northern-central Kansas.

According to the NWS Storm Prediction Center, the area was at “moderate risk,” and blowing snow may pose a danger for motorists in Minnesota and the Dakotas.
