TUSCON, Ariz. (AP) - Strong winds blew part of the roof off a gas station and temporarily knocked out power for about 2,000 customers last night in southeast Tucson.

KOLD-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1KS8cqo) Tucson Electric Power had restored service to all but three customers by early Friday morning, but the city is still warning drivers to avoid certain areas.

A building inspector is at the Shell station where the awning over its gas pumps was partially torn way during the storm.

City of Tucson spokesman Michael Graham says Harrison Road remains closed by water flows at the Pantano Wash.
