Arizona Department of Transportation officials said I-10 in southeastern Arizona near San Simon was closed at milepost 352 for blowing dust reported at milepost 376.

The westbound lanes of the freeway at Lordsburg, New Mexico about 15 miles west of the state line were also closed.
On Sunday, a multiple-car crash near San Simon closed I-10 for several hours after severe wind and dust caused zero visibility in the area.

The area caused major trouble last year as a local farm kept sending massive clouds of dust during windy days.
The Arizona Department of Environmental Quality says that same farm is causing the blowing dust now and that it is taking action.
