Wind storm in Utah


In Utah, about 50,000 customers lost power along the state's 120-mile Wasatch Front as high winds took down power lines, but service was restored to more than half of them by Thursday night.


On Interstate 15, strong gusts blew more than 10 semi-trucks onto their sides, prompting authorities to temporarily close the highway to trucks. Commuter train travel was also interrupted after debris covered the tracks.


Schools closed in Centerville, where a 102-mph gust was reported. Mail delivery and trash pickup were canceled.


Davis County issued a disaster declaration to request state assistance, citing more than $3.5 million in estimated damage to infrastructure.


The Red Cross opened three centers to provide food and aid to people affected by the storm, and opened one overnight shelter in Ogden.
