Phoenix Dust Storm: Video of Doomsday Scenes in Arizona

These amazing pictures from the United States show a wall of dust moving through the city of Phoenix in Arizona. Sandstorms like this happen during the region’s monsoon season, which is underway. They occur over desert land and can reach thousands of feet into the air, spurred by strong winds. The dense cloud dramatically reduced visibility, grounding flights at a major airport and leaving thousands without electricity.

Watch the wall of dust engulf the Wild Horse Pass Casino and Resort. The end of clip shows daylight to night within seconds. Drive home was horrendous with 15-50 ft visibility (barely).

The violent dust or sandstorm called a haboob typically occurs over desert land and can stretch thousands of feet high, according to the National Weather Service.

  1. Amazing footage. Like something from a Hollywood disaster movie.
    Just watched it on BBC News. Apparently the height of this storm was 10,000ft.
    Must have been scary seeing that approaching.

  2. In a sky high few of this event … there’s seen a sky effect of clouds moving in which coincide with the stirred mass of dust moving on the ground …

    Now if there was a ‘slow low’ flying and massive size mothership moving into view of that area and yet remained cloaked … the atmospheric disturbance caused by the craft, would also cause such a sky and land event as this HABOOB yielding no water in the passing of the apparent storm ..

    Also there are many pockets of enclosed atmosphere holding motherships in fields of alternant realities … whichever float in our skies unseen .. when their bubble barriers of quantum H20 breakdown, and their cloaking field is raised … the same effect of a HABOOB will take place but water will fall as mud …

  5. it was crazy I’ve lived in phoenix all my life and it was the biggest haboob I’ve ever seen. On the way home from work we couldn’t see 10 feet in front of the car traffic lights were barely visible, people stuck walking or waiting for the bus were holding wet cloths to there mouths to prevent suffocation from the thick dust. it looked like a scene from the mummy the way the wall of dust just rolled in and swallowed every thing in its path it was pretty scary but also one of the coolest things I’ve ever seen .
