Border Wall Blown Over by Wind

Gusty winds blew over a portion of President Trump's border wall with Mexico in California

A construction crew works on a fallen section of the US-Mexico border wall as seen from Mexicali, Baja California state, Mexico, on January 29, 2020.
A portion of President Donald Trump’s border wall blew over from gusty winds Wednesday, falling on the Mexican side of the border.
The newly installed panels were a part of an ongoing project to improve existing parts of the wall in Calexico, California.  
Agent Carlos Pitones of the Customs and Border Protection in El Centro, California, told CNN that the new concrete foundation had not yet cured when the wall panels fell down amid windy conditions.
“We are grateful there was no property damage or injuries,” Pitones said.
