A video from Videosift featuring the outrageous footage of a dust storm in the Australian Outback.

In the 1930s, the American Midwest was riddled with streams of unforgiving dust storms, giving way to the region’s infamously depression nickname, the Dust Bowl. For six years the storms wreaked havoc on both the land and the people, turning blue skies into complete darkness, sometimes for days. While this period is now a bygone chapter in the country’s history, the outrageous phenomenon still occurs in other arid parts of the world. Watch a drive through a rather ominous dust cloud in the Australian Outback in this video from Videosift.
