dust storm in phoenix: a haboob
Late yesterday afternoon a dust storm descended on the peaceful city of Phoenix Arizona. These kind of storms seem to occur once every year or so. A photographer at the Arizona Republic got a great picture of this storm approaching. I thought it was pretty cool so I posted it here on the site. Click on "Read More..." to see a larger picture. The building with a domed roof is Chase Field (formerly Bank One Ballpark), home of the Arizona Diamondbacks.
I don't know where this picture was taken from but it looks like it was probably from a plane or helicoptor. The buildings in the foreground are from downtown Phoenix which is where the bulk of the storm hit. Technically this kind of dust storm is known as a haboob. They are most common in dry hot regions -- typically the Sahara desert and the SW United States.
