LAS VEGAS >> Air quality officials in Las Vegas are issuing a dust advisory Friday as winds are expected to sweep across southern Nevada.

The National Weather Service says gusts of up to 50 mph could hit the Las Vegas area. A wind advisory is in effect from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Friday.

The Clark County Department of Air Quality in Las Vegas is advising residents and construction site operators to take precautions to prevent blowing dust.

Why does the SA even list this as a "story"? Slow news day? I used to live in LV and high winds and dust are common.

Maybe it's because they want us to call our relatives there and tell them "Good day to fly a kite and play the song Dust in the Wind!"
