A city of millions of people “Disappeared” for a second: It literally seemed to be wiped out from the face of the earth

One year ago, the American city of Phoenix in Arizona was hit by a severe storm that was accompanied by a sandstorm.

The city was completely paralyzed during the sandstorm.

The capital of the state of Arizona, Phoenix is located in a hot desert climate under the influence of monsoon. Usually, the Phoenix has long hot summers, and winters are mild. The weather is mostly dry with lots of suns and pure skies.
