Haboob

Quick close the shutters and doors
A haboob’s rolling in
Prepare for one big hellish storm
As the haboob rushes in….








A haboob (Arabic: هَبوب, romanized: habūb, lit. ‘blasting/drifting’) is a type of intense dust storm carried on an atmospheric gravity current, also known as a weather front. Haboobs occur regularly in dry land area regions throughout the world.
