Right around minute 9:00 in the video is where it approaches near zero visibility. Other times while in the storm were difficult to see as well.

I was driving on the freeway when a nice dust storm appears in the East Valley (Mesa/Gilbert), Arizona. I attempted to beat the dust storm (Haboob) home but didn't quite make it. There were points while driving where I had near zero visibility, as can be seen toward the end of the video. The winds in this storm appeared to have higher speeds than the last large storm over a year ago on July 5, 2011 (which I also happened to drive through and record).

The video is long. I basically kept the camera rolling as I approached and then drove through the storm. It is interesting to see the dramatic change in the environment from the semi-clear day to that within the dusty storm.

After the dust storm rolled through we then got drenched (for Arizona) with rain. A nice way to make the thick coat of dirt/sand stick and solidify to anything it just dusted.
