A Dust Bowl dust storm

A dust storm, or sandstorm, is a storm of small particles of sand and dirt. Dust storms happen when a strong wind front blows loose sand and dust from a dry surface. Particles are transported by suspension in the air, causing soil erosion from one place and deposition in another.
