I have received some more pictures on this storm. Email states it hit on the 26th of April. There is also a pic of after the storm hit. The email says 1 minute afterwards and it's pitch dark.

I'll upload them later and link to them.

Question: how much confidence could you muster to jump in a jet fighter after this thing blew through? Can some one say - major clean up???

Email says these were taken at Al Asad Air Base.

Val', thanks for those images.

For me, it just reinforces the power of nature.

Amazing Pics!!!

If I had never seen such a thing, I might have thought the end of the world was near, I wonder what the local reaction to this rare storm was?
