Wednesday, July 11, 2018, 13:11 - An haboob blasted through parts of Arizona Monday, sending a kilometre-high wall of dust billowing over Interstates 17 and 8 just after 5 p.m.

The haboob, a dusty system that forms on the edge of a thunderstorm, served as the opening act for an evening of hurricane-force wind gusts, hail and rain.

While these systems are common in Arizona in the summer the storms captured the attention of social media, because they were so photogenic.
