The high winds are whipping everyone around across the Basin.

Many of us in the NewsWest 9 Newsroom even got a dirt facial on our way into work on Tuesday.

In Midland County, those power packed winds knocked out power for almost 1,500 people.

In Odessa, the wind even wiped out power to several traffic lights causing some confusion.

We even caught several drivers blowing through the lights causing several near-misses.
