A massive dust storm – also known as a haboob – moved through Phoenix, Arizona on Tuesday, July 5. Here is raw footage of the storm.
I believe this footage is from KNXV-TV in Phoenix.
NOAA describes a haboob as a “violent dust or sandstorm occurring on the southwest deserts of Arizona. It depicts the leading edge, or gust front, of an approaching storm, and wind speeds can exceed 60 mph.”
