Rain, Dust Storms Return to the Basin

Staff Report

Thunderstorms kicked up a large dust storm in the Basin on Thursday night.

The wall of dust quickly swallowed everything in it's path.

Some of you called our newsroom saying you couldn't see a thing through the red dust.

The dust storm was followed by something we haven't seen much of in the basin, rain!

However, we didn't see much of it as there was more dust than anything.

If you live in Big Spring or Midland, you were the lucky ones as that was where the rain was concentrated.

The wet stuff was definitely brief and didn't stick around for very long.
