Dust Storm – level 1

06/07/2011 18:23

Date: 5th July 2011

Place: Phoenix, Arizona, USA.

A very big dust storm was in the USA. It was in the south-east. The dust storm came very fast. You can see it on the video. The city of Phoenix was under dust. In some parts of the city people didn’t see. Some airports stopped their service. It was also very difficult to drive. And the drivers stopped on the street and waited. The wind was sometimes 112 kilometres per hour strong. The dust was 48 kilometres wide and 1500 metres high. But nobody died. Only some people didn’t have electricity for some time.
