Rare haboob swept through the northern plains of the United States

(ORDO NEWS) — On Thursday evening, a rare weather phenomenon called “haboob” was observed in parts of the Northern Plains.

Haboob is a dust storm commonly seen in deserts, but one such storm has been seen in Iowa, South Dakota, and Minnesota.

Although there are no deserts in the Northern Plains, there was a lot of dust after the megadrought that swept the central regions of the United States.

The National Weather Service tweeted footage of a fast-moving haboob passing through Sioux Falls, South Dakota, instantly turning day into night.

The weather event, which occurred on Thursday in parts of the Northern Plains, is ultra-rare and similar to dust storms during the Dust Bowl era of the 1930s.

Farmers in the region are struggling with either dry conditions or wet fields, which suggests yields may not be adequate this growing season, adding to pressure on grain price inflation.
