Raw footage of July 5, 2011 dust storm in Phoenix

Raw video footage of the July 5 dust storm that moved through Phoenix, Arizona. Awesome and scary-looking.

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.”
