    These large dust storms seem to happen more in the eastern states (I'm in the West). We do have what are called locally 'willie willies', like a tiny tornado that seems to come from nowhere. I was working in a tree nursery some years ago and saw one start. It picked up several heavy crates that were full of small trees and tossed them. It eventually just faded out, but they can go on to create dust storms.

    We have those "Willies" here also, they are known as "dust devils".

    We call them "dust devils" here as well. I saw an incident similar to Julieanne's in my own back yard. But they aren't common.
