Driving Into An Arizona Haboob

From trusted Wikipedia:

A haboob (Arabic: هَبوب‎ "blasting/drafting") is a type of intense dust storm carried on an atmospheric gravity current.

The music is atmospheric, but perhaps a bit too much.
I mean, it's an intriguing meteorological phenomenon, but not the prelude to the Apocalypse.


It's well worth watching everything in HD.

Here's the same haboob from July 5th 2011 engulfing Pheonix, Arizona.
