YUMA, Arizona - A large dust storm swept across Arizona Thursday evening.

This time lapse video from outside the studios of KYMA-TV shows the dust storm as it moved over the area.

The storm, also known as a haboob, was part of a larger system in the area that knocked down trees as well as dozens of power poles and left some 12-thousand homes without power.

The National Weather Service says the storm was capable of producing winds up to fifty miles an hour.
