    Phoenix Haboob | September 6th, 2014


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     mikeo75 is no stranger to haboobs or dust storms, having captured one on CNN iReport three years ago. These happen a few times every summer in Arizona during monsoon season. He told me there was zero visibility in many areas of Phoenix when this hit, and traffic was stopped briefly on Interstate 10. Luke Neumann gave permission to use his music.
    - hhanks, CNN iReport producer

    A strong line of storms southeast of Phoenix created a massive haboob that lowered visibility to zero and caused accidents along Interstate 10.

    The haboob rolled into Phoenix around 6:20 PM and blanketed the city in dust.

    I photographed this on the northeast of corner of 7th Street and Interstate 10 in downtown Phoenix...a spot where I've captured quite a few of these over the years!
