Giant Dust Storm Hits Phoenix and the images are amazing!

A massive dust storm, also known as a haboob, hit Phoenix, AZ on Sunday and the images are amazing!

A surreal image captures a distinct layer in the atmosphere between the thunderstorm above that creates the dust storm below with its herculean updraft.

Then, this timelapse shows how someone on the ground might experience the sudden onslaught of sand and wind.

Of course, beauty can be found even when mother nature gets violent.
