Massive Wall of Dust Moves Toward Northern New Mexico Town

A wall of dust descended on Shiprock, New Mexico, on July 28 as storms moved through the area.

Francisco Bailon recorded this footage of the intense dust storm, also known as a haboob.

“Upon impact of haboob, it is similar to sonic blast, he said. “Then it slows down. These happen year around in our area.” Credit: Francisco Bailon via Storyful
