Wall of Dust Moves Over Phoenix Suburb

Dust blew across the Phoenix area on June 21, with video here showing the wall of dust approaching Ahwatukee, on the city’s southern outskirts. A Dust Advisory was issued for Maricopa and Pinal Counties, with winds expected between 30-40 mph.

The National Weather Service issued a Dust Advisory. It warned there would be “gusty winds, blowing dust, lightning, and locally heavy rainfall.”

Local news said it was the “first big dust storm of the 2022 monsoon season.”
