Default Day the sky turned brown: 3,000ft high dust cloud rolls across Arizona AGAIN!

FYI! Another sand-out storm!

Arizona dust storm: 3,000ft high cloud turns sky brown | Mail Online

The National Weather Service office in Phoenix called the dust storm 'very large and historic', in a statement posted on its website, describing the blow as an 'impressive event'.

Weather officials say haboobs only happen in Arizona, the Sahara desert and parts of the Middle East because of dry conditions and large amounts of sand.

Pollution levels skyrocket during dust storms and create even more breathing problems for people with asthma and other similar conditions.

The dust also brings increases in a disease known as Valley Fever, a fungal pneumonia.

Valley Fever thrives in the hot and arid south-west in dirt found just a few feet beneath the earth's surface; it can be stirred up by construction, wind and other activity.

I am surprised to have seen another "Haboob" so soon on the heels of the bigger one. We used to get ones like the one that made news a couple of weeks ago more often. They don't happen as often as they used to.

Lived in this state well over 40 years, and I have NEVER EVER heard it called a frickin' "HABOOB" before! Maybe in the Middle East it's a "haboob", but here it's a DUST STORM! If the media types wanna call it by an Arabic name, they can go to Iraq! Egads.
Yes, the first and second ones swept right over me, sky went dark, couldn't see the road from the front window, couldn't see the back wall of the back yard. Very glad to not have been driving during those conditions.

Relax an drink a beer or smoke a joint or something. Man it is just a word no need to go all red faced HULK on us.

If you want to get technical about it habob is English it is هبوب in Arabic.
