Top Stories

TAOS, N.M. (KRQE) – A possible dust devil wreaked havoc on a northern New Mexico restaurant this weekend.

Cell phone video caught the funnel as it touched down near Taos. It blew the roof off the Medley Restaurant and Wine Shop in El Prado. The high winds also knocked out electricity and gas to the building.

The National Weather Service says this was different not a tornado since the funnel does not reach all the way to the clouds, but it has the appearance of a dust devil.
