‘Dust Devil’ Hits Yucaipa Village MHP


At around 3:30PM Tuesday, Our Mobile Home suddenly began to rumble & shake, as if there was an earthquake. We looked outside to see a small, dirty twisting of air, violently hitting our home, trees, and landscaping. We guessed the wind speed to be around 30 to 40 MPH. A blue tarp was blown of our neighbors roof, Our patio umbrella and picnic table were blown over, 4 small plastic chairs were thrown into the air, and we had debris everywhere! We estimate the entire event lasted 15 seconds…We have more tropical weather expected this weekend as a Tropical Wave approaches us from old Mexico 🇲🇽…
A dust devil is a strong, well-formed, and relatively short-lived whirlwind, ranging from small to large…The primary vertical motion is upward…Dust devils are usually harmless, but can on rare occasions grow large enough to pose a threat to both people and property…
