EL PASO – If you were out today, you know just how windy it was around the borderland. However, that didn't keep locals locked inside their homes.

With some areas getting up to 70 MPH wind gusts, Sun City felt more like the Windy City, especially in the downtown area. Despite the rough weather, some folks went to what could be considered the windiest place to be in El Paso.

“It's just very beautiful on Scenic Drive. Especially on a day like this, you can especially admire the scenery of El Paso,” said Lydia Maria Cantu.

“The organization El Paso for Jesus had asked us if we could come here and pray for Juarez today, so I'm here doing that,” said another woman.

Some said that it can be dangerous to drive under such windy conditions.

“On very windy days, you have to drive slower...the wind can...feel like it's picking up your car,” added Cantu.

The winds are expected to die down as the day continues.
