The winds here are not a tornado, despite what witnesses say on social media, but they do suggest circular wind patterns known as a dust devil that form in clear, sunny conditions. The National Weather Service confirmed the occurrence as a “cold dust devil.”
The scene was caught on camera by a producer running Youtube channel, Adsport.
