Amazing time-lapse of Arizona dust storm

Impressive video of a sandstorm that gobbles the city of Phoenix, Arizona, has gone viral on the internet charming users all over the world with nature’s irresistible power and beauty.

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.
