When I watch this video, all I can think of is, who are those people driving INTO that dust storm and why are they ok with it?

Incredible Video: Dramatic Dust Storm In Arizona

PHOENIX, AZ Thunderstorms in southern Arizona whipped up quite a sight in the Arizona desert Tuesday afternoon.

A massive wall of sand was kicked up by a storm, rolling across the desert from the Casa Grande area, moving it north toward Phoenix at about 25 to 30 miles an hour.

The sand blanketed Interstate 10 between Phoenix and Tucson, Arizona dropping visibility for drivers down to zero, right in the middle of the evening rush.

The official name of this type of a storm is a "Haboob" which is an Arabic word that is used to describe these storms in the Sahara Desert.

The sand storm is usually fast moving and can go as high as three thousand feet into the air.
