A massive dust storm swept through Lubbock, Texas early Monday evening, the likes of which haven't been seen since the Dust Bowl era, according to the Lubbock Avalanche-Journal.

The storm, which brought with it winds of 60-65 mph according to the report, seriously reduced visibility and took 30 minutes to blow through the city.
