The desert Southwest has been dealing with monsoon thunderstorms nearly every day this week.

Some of these thunderstorms have been strong to severe.

Strong winds from these thunderstorms commonly kick up dust and sand, creating large storms that look like a wall of dust.

During these storms, visibility can drop to almost zero in nearly no time at all.
