Part of US-Mexico border wall in California falls due to strong winds

California

MEXICALI, Calif. (CNN) — Part of the U.S. – Mexico border wall fell over Wednesday.

Strong winds blew down panels in Mexicali, Mexico, causing them to land on trees on the Mexican side of the border.

The area is part of an ongoing construction project to improve existing sections of the wall.

A customs and border patrol agent said the sections had recently been set in concrete that hadn’t yet cured.

No one was hurt.

The agent says it’s unclear how long it will take to fix the panels
