LYNCHBURG, Va., April 21 (UPI) -- A college softball game in Virginia was subject to a unique weather delay during the weekend when a huge dust devil swept across the infield.

A video posted to YouTube by Lynchburg Sports shows a clip from Saturday's game between the Lynchburg College Hornets and the Bridgewater College Eagles.

The clip shows the batter in place and the pitcher about to throw the ball when a massive dust devil, or "dirt tornado," enters the frame of the video and sweeps across the infield while the players flee.

"Mother Nature wanted to play along at Moon Field this past Saturday vs Bridgewater," the video's description reads.
