    Massive haboob swallows up Phoenix


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Pulling out of a parking lot of a local camera shop in Phoenix, AZ, APizm says he caught a glimpse of the first major Haboob of the season when he saw a bright red, orange and yellow glow on the horizon to the East. Racing up a mountain that was nearby, he skipped the official trail to get a better viewing advantage and was able to capture this Haboob from a very unique angle. "I had made it just in time. You really get a good and scary sense of the size and magnitude of these types of storms. It will be a photograph I will never forget," he says. " I could see cars, skyscrapers and entire mountain ranges getting swallowed up through my viewfinder. Two days later, I was still getting dust out of my ears."
    - Anika3, CNN iReport producer

    We have had a few dust storms in the past month or so but nothing like the one that hit the entire Phoenix area today. This one was huge and the first major Haboob of the season!
