PHOENIX (AP) - Wind from a powerful storm damaged buildings and knocked down trees and utility poles as a low-pressure system moved through the Phoenix area.

Damage from the storm late Sunday appeared to be heaviest on the metro area’s near west side. It included heavy damage to cotton warehouses, including some which lost their roofs, and a gas station’s carport-style roof that was knocked over.

More than 22,000 utility customers lost power Sunday evening. Crews worked overnight to repair damage and the number of customers still without power by mid-morning Monday dropped to fewer than 800.

The American Red Cross said downed trees damaged roofs of at least three apartment complexes, displacing several family from one of the complexes.

No injuries were reported.
