Dust storm hits Phoenix

PHOENIX (AP) - A blinding dust storm swept through central Arizona and prompted the grounding of flights at Phoenix's main airport.

Sky Harbor International Airport spokeswoman Julie Rodriguez says the suspension of all inbound and outbound flights took effect about 8 p.m. PDT Thursday.

She says that the Federal Aviation Administration is communicating with airlines about their flights.

Meteorologist Charlotte Dewey of the National Weather Service tells the Arizona Republic (http://bit.ly/1lYkm95 ) that the storm swept into the Phoenix area about 7:30 p.m. and was expected to linger for three to four hours.
