Dust storms have Dickinson residents pleading for help


Two residents came to the Dickinson City Commission meeting Tuesday to "plea for help" at Dickinson City Hall, saying dust is drifting from a construction site west of 23rd Avenue West into their yards like a blizzard.

"My entire yard is completely destroyed at this point," David Kenjalo said, who lives near 23rd Avenue West. "When the wind is blowing, it's coming just like the snow would when it is snowing."
