Amazing time-lapse of Arizona dust storm
Two photographers – Mike Olbinski and Blaine Coury – managed to catch a haboob – a type of intense sandstorm commonly observed in arid regions throughout the world.
The dense cloud dramatically reduced visibility, grounding flights at a major airport and leaving thousands without electricity.
Such sandstorms are typical of Arizona’s monsoon season, which is currently underway. They occur over deserts and can reach thousands of feet into the air, spurred by strong winds.
