Northeast El Paso Gets Brunt of Wind Gusts

Monday, May 9, 2011 - 5:53pm

EL PASO - Strong winds are kicking up dust again. While it's not so bad in some places, the winds are much worse in other neighborhoods.

The Northeast side of El Paso is one of those areas. Winds generally blow from the west and they pick momentum as they come over the Franklin Mountains, which results in stronger gusts for the Northeast.

"My roof's always flying off. Every time it's over 40 miles an hour, I have a bad mess with the yard. I'm always trying to clean up," said Northeast resident, Javier Carrasco.

Adding insult to injury: homes in the Northeast lose a lot of roof shingles to the wind.
