Weather conditions and human activity can lead to high levels of dust, making it unsafe for those with asthma, allergies or chronic breathing and lung problems.

The New Mexico Environment Department said on Friday that the elderly, pregnant women and people who suffer from respiratory conditions should avoid going outside.

Dust storms in parts of western New Mexico have shut down Interstate 10 on several occasions this year because of low visibility.
