Dust Storm Sweeps Across Arizona

It’s monsoon season in Arizona and that means it’s also the season for dust storms. The city of Phoenix was engulfed in a large dust cloud yesterday, significantly reducing visibility and causing thousands to experience power outages. Dust storms can reach up to a mile high and on Tuesday all flights were delayed until well after 9pm. This video shows how the large wall of dust swept across the Phoenix and other surrounding regions in Arizona.

  9. I was outside during this… filming. It was honestly one of the most awesome horrifying experiences i have ever had. I was honestly picked up and thrown down when the wind hit. Had to huddle on a mountain for a half and hour before i could work up the guts to try and climb down. Couldn’t see a thing. got some kick a$$ footage though ha

  15. Why are they using a helicopter sound effect clip on this video?

    It is clearly a looping sound effect clip of helicopter noise.

    Was this actual video taken from an actual helicopter?
    If so, why the pasted in audio?
