Hello all,

A friend of mine sent a youtube video of a sandstorm, i had no idea how ominous and amazing these storms were. I found some other ones and provided them below for you guys and gals to enjoy

They look like something out of a movie, and would be spooky as hell in real life.

If this was created by Mother Nature, then someone needs to make peace with her. If HAARP is doing this they need to be stopped. Was this also the time the floods were going on or is this some past event?

I'm not sure of the dates, I think one of them was made in 2009. I don't really believe it's haarp though, these storms have been recorded for hundreds if not thousands of yrs.

There are some amazing pictures i found HERE

Regardless, it's an amazing sight for sure.

Not a big deal, but just to clarify: this is technically a "duststorm", not a sandstorm.

Sandstorms rarely reach higher than 5-6', contain small, heavy, sand granules (typically quartz/silicon and other heavier components that are too heavy to get much higher above the ground than about human-height), are accompanied by very strong winds, can cause significant damage from ablation/abrasion, and are generally localized, covering a much smaller area than:

Dust storms, which can reach a thousand feet or more in altitude, accompanied by slower winds, contain fine particles of dust and silt (such as loess), and are much larger in breadth and scope than sandstorms, often covering hundred or even thousands of square miles.
