Huge Dust Storm in Phoenix Arizona

Every once in a while, we get huge dust storms in Arizona. We were just finishing up a shoot this evening when I looked over and saw a huge wall of dust coming toward us.Every once in a while, we get huge dust storms in Phoenix Arizona. On July 5, 2011, we were just finishing up a photo shoot when I looked over and saw a huge wall of dust coming toward us. They call it a haboob, which is basically a huge wall of dust and with extremely high winds that blows through, knocking down trees and power lines. We get them in the Phoenix area from time to time, but this is the worst one that I can remember. I quickly got my gear inside the car, and took a few photos and videos. Here are photos and video from downtown Gilbert, AZ. Shot by Arizona Photographer - Jerry Ferguson.
