(ETH) – Two dust storms reportedly converged over the greater Phoenix area on Sunday closing down interstate 10 for a brief time and only hours after the city broke another record as a deadly heatwave continues to grip the West, In fact, The National Weather Service (NWS) announced that the Phoenix office stated that the city beat the previous record-high temperature of 113 degrees Fahrenheit on Sunday, topping out at 115 degrees.

Thunderstorms developed later in the day triggering dust storms across parts of the area. Just before 6 p.m., the NWS issued a dust advisory for “a wall of dust” moving south across parts of the area at 40 mph, before issuing a dust storm warning for Maricopa and Pinal Counties and causing visibility to fall to zero miles at Sky Harbor International Airport.

When the dust storms collided it produced a massive wall of dust that forced drivers throughout the area to pull their vehicles over to stay safe from roads with low visibility. A semi-truck on Interstate 10 near Picacho Peak was blown over by its side during the storm, resulting in the roadway being closed for a short period.
