A strong monsoon storm moved through the Valley Monday, bringing heavy rain, gusty winds and dust -- also toppling trees and leaving thousands without power.

The powerful storm also downed trees and power lines across Valley cities.

ABC15 viewer photos showed trees blocking roadways in Ahwatukee, Tempe and Chandler, while others had toppled through block walls and landed on top of cars.

The gusts, up to 60 mph in some areas, also wreaked havoc on a housing development near 24th Street and Pecos Road, sending wood planks scattering.

The strong winds and pelting rain are also believed to have led to a semi rollover on Interstate 10 near Loop 202 Santan, that blocked traffic for several hours Monday evening.
