By Brittany Cooper

Pocatello, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KTWT-TV ) Interstate 86 is finally open following a massive dust storm Saturday afternoon.

A dust storm caused a number of accidents west of Pocatello between mileposts 51 and 52.

Ben Lyons who sent us photos says he saw around two dozen wrecks.
The blowing dust created zero visibility for motorists and traffic came to a stand still on Interstate 86.

There was one point this afternoon where traffic could not be diverted due to lack of visibility on side roads.
