On Tuesday evening, massive walls of dust rolled through the Phoenix Metropolitan Area, promoting the Arizona Department of Transportation to warn drivers to stay off roads as visibility was heavily impacted. 

Just before 7:30 pm local time, the National Weather Service in Phoenix said the dust cloud was blowing into the Phoenix area and would impair visibility. 

Local news Fox 10 captured the massive dust storm rolling through the metro area.

The latest data from the US Drought Monitor shows much of Arizona is in some form of a drought. 

As for the drought situation in the western half of the country, it's severe and alarming, and lands are transforming into fallow wastelands.
