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 before you hit the road to check for updated closures and delays.
