ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — The unusually-early storm that is hitting New Mexico has been causing a lot of damage – there's power outages, flooding, downed trees, and slick roads across the state.

The wind in the metro peaked Tuesday evening at over 70 mph.

The intersection at 5th Street and Lomas was closed Wednesday because roof panels were blown off the district courthouse.

PNM officials also said some of their power line poles just snapped or were lifted from their foundation altogether. 

But that's not all – a viral video shows a porta-potty on the move down Central near Tramway.
