Dust Storm – level 2
Date: 5th July 2011
Place: Phoenix, Arizona, USA.
There was a very big dust storm in the south-east part of the United States. As you can see on the video the dust storm was coming very fast and in a very short time the city of Phoenix was hidden in dust. In some parts of the city people didn’t see anything and some of the airports had to be closed. It was also very difficult to drive and the drivers had to stop and wait. The wind was sometimes 112 kilometres per hour strong and the dust cloud was about 48 kilometres wide and 1500 metres high. But nobody was killed. Only some people lost electricity for some time
