The winds knocked out power in North-Central El Paso near Altura and Gateway North.
Two electric poles snapped due to the high winds.
Power lines were blown completely across all the north and south bound lanes.
Police had to force all traffic off the freeway while crews removed those lines.
One woman describes what those snapping power lines sounded like.
