IDAHO FALLS, Idaho — It's definitely a windy weekend across the Gem State and it's causing serious problems in Eastern Idaho.

Idaho State Police shared photos on social media Saturday showing a tipped semi truck on I-15 that blocked all southbound lanes. The truck was hauling airplane parts.

ISP later shared images of a dust storm completely blocking visibility on I-15 north of Idaho Falls prompting a complete closure of the highway.

Winds were close to 60 mph in the area.

Be sure to check 511.idaho.gov before you hit the road to check for updated closures and delays.
