May 13 (UPI) -- Motorists in Nebraska this week found themselves stuck in a massive dust cloud during a major thunderstorm, dropping visibility to near zero and whipping up hurricane-force winds.
Footage taken Thursday by one woman attempting to drive through the dust cloud shows how quickly the weather conditions changed as the massive plume engulfs her along I-80.
""I've never seen anything quite like this," said nurse Lisa Wulf, who recorded the video.
"You literally have no visibility ahead of you."
A photo taken by Nebraska's Department of Transportation shows the magnitude of the dust cloud, blocking out everything in its path.
