Sandstorm from Hell

Harrowing footage from an Iraqi sandstorm.

UPDATE: This video was shot by Cade Skinner, who was kind enough to write in with some background info:

The sandstorm happened at Al Asad Airbase in western Iraq around 6pm on April 27th. We were told later that the storm was traveling about 60mph and I verified with my weather station that the winds were about 30mph.
