April 8, 2016 - SOUTHERN UNITED STATES - Strong winds associated with a cold front picked up dust and debris and created a heavy, 160 km (100 miles) wide dust storm that blanketed much of Texas Panhandle late April 5/April 6, 2016.

NWS Amarillo forecaster Nicholas Fenner said the storm threw dust about 610 meters (2,000 feet) into the air. The storm reached as far north as Oklahoma Panhandle and as far south as Lubbock, Texas before it dissipated.

There were no reports of any road closures or anyone hurt from the dust storm.
