Haboob Moves through Lubbock Leaving Some Damage[VIDEO]
The intense dust storm, known in weather circles as a “haboob”, moved through Lubbock and the rest of the South Plains yesterday around five and left a bit of damage. Some trees and power lines were downed with power outages reported throughout the area. Roof damage was reported at several places including Chaparral Airport. In fact one FedEx jumbo jet was lifted up and blown around! Wind gusts at one point were 74 mph! Here’s a video taken from atop a building on Texas Tech University campus that gives a good look at what happened.
