The storm, which is known as "haboob," blasted through Phoenix and the surrounding metro area in the evening bringing low visibility and gusty winds. Wind speeds surpassed 60 mph during the storm's peak intensity prompting the city to issue a dust storm warning.
There have been no reports of injuries or property damage. Social media, however, was pretty shaken up by the storm.
