Some Las Vegas casinos damaged during end of March wind storm

Some Las Vegas area casinos are reporting minor damage after a dusty storm swept through the region end of March with howling winds topping 70 mph.

An MGM Resorts International official said that a temporary wall at a Monte Carlo hotel-casino food court construction site collapsed.
Casino representatives said one person was treated for minor injuries.

At the Palms Casino Resort windows were damaged in three unoccupied storage rooms in one high-rise tower west of the Las Vegas Strip.

No serious injuries were reported, but widespread power outages scattered throughout Clark County left more than 40,000 customers without power.

Dust reduced visibility to a mile or less, according to the weather service. Normal views of the Las Vegas Strip from outlying areas were obliterated.

High winds and poor visibility caused flight delays at McCarran International Airport. Gusts at McCarran peaked at 60 mph, breaking a record set a little over five years ago.
