An incredible weather phenomenon is shocking people in this place. Somewhere on earth, clouds look like having fallen down from the sky. This extraordinary meteorological phenomenon appears like a tsunami of clouds turning day into night and ready to “swallow” everything it encounters. From people to houses, from plants to vehicles, everything seems to be in danger. But what’s the reality? Is it really a doomsday? An alien mysterious weapon? Here’s the secret revealed.
It’s something not unique at all. On the contrary, it’s a meteorological phenomenon common in arid and semi-arid regions: a dust storm.
“Dust storms arise when a gust front or other strong wind blows loose sand and dirt from a dry surface. Fine particles are transported by saltation and suspension, a process that moves soil from one place and deposits it in another…“.
On last October a dust storm has been caught on camera as it rolls across Phoenix in the US state of Arizona. BBC news published an aerial footage showing the giant sand cloud moving across the sky covering streets and major road networks.
Therefore, this weather condition is more diffuse than we may think. You can even have a look at the various dust storms caught around the planet on this photo gallery published by TheGuardian.com.
