"Haboob" Dust Storm Sweeps Across Paradise Valley?
Our team in North Tempe, Mesa Central, and Paradise Valley restores storm-damaged properties in Paradise Valley each year. According to The Arizona Emergency Network (AEN), strong winds produced by thunderstorms can blow loose sand and dirt from the ground, causing these large walls of dust and debris, or dust storms. These dust storms, or "haboobs," are unexpected and can happen any time of the year in Arizona. These haboobs can be miles long and thousands of feet high. Dust storms can reduce visibility to near zero in seconds, often causing deadly car crashes.
The AEN urges residents to become familiar with these terms to help identify a dust storm hazard:
Dust Storm Watch
This tells you when and where dust storms are likely to occur. Watch the sky and stay tuned to National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Weather Radio, commercial radio, or television for information.
Dust Storm Warning
It is issued when visibility is 1/2 mile or less due to blowing dust or sand and wind speeds of 30 miles an hour or more.
