Dust storm darkens skies in Texas town
18 October 2011 Last updated at 08:18 ET
A dust storm made a town in Texas look more like Mars on Monday, as winds of up to 70 miles an hour churned up a cloud of red dust almost 1.5 miles (2.4km) high.
The city of Lubbock saw power lines brought down and roofs damaged by strong gusts, and a small cargo plane was tipped back onto its rear wheels and tail.
No injuries were reported after the storm, thought to have been caused by a persistent drought in west Texas.
