    The Phoenix Haboob of July 5th, 2011

     

    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     mikeo75 told me when he got word that the dust storm was approaching the downtown Phoenix area he grabbed his camera and ran to the fourth level of a parking garage to take pictures. "We get haboobs a lot." he said. “I've seen pictures of dust storms from other places but never seen anything up close. Last night it looked apocalyptic – like from a movie or something.”
    - ericfrazier, CNN Editorial Assistant

    Never seen anything like this in my life as a 35-year native of Phoenix, AZ.

     

    Shot this around 7th Street & McDowell Road in downtown Phoenix.
