Dust Storm Video: Epic Haboob Engulfs Phoenix, Arizona – September 6, 2014


This is a beautiful dust storm video!

Watch this epic haboob engulfing Phoenix, Arizona on September 6, 2014.

The season opened with an epic haboob (or dust storm) over Phoenix on July 3rd, and it may have just capped off the monsoon with another beautiful evening dust storm on September 6, 2014.

As noted on the haboob Vimeo video: I was behind this thing after chasing down south for most of the afternoon, and it was all I could do to make my way through the dust safely and come out on the other side to time-lapse this bad boy. I stopped first near Riggs Road and I-10 to get it marching through the desert, and then raced to my favorite spot downtown to get it with that epic view of Phoenix.

This guy was moving fast…the video is only from 6:21 to 6:44pm…but I’m glad I got there when I did. The way it comes over the mountains always blows my mind, and then watching Phoenix get completely engulfed is something I never get tired of seeing.

I would once like to experience such an incredible haboob live! What about you?
