Dust Storm

Time lapsed in Phoenix, Arizona these two photographers Mike Olbinski and Blaine Coury took amazing footage of this common occurrence called a dust storm or sandstorm. Normally this will happen during the monsoon season which is what you see here in this video. The barren desert land meets strong winds that in turn stirs the sand up, reaching thousands of feet into the air. These dust storms can ground flights,reduce visibility and leave people with no electricity.
