Phoenix Sky Harbor said there were no delays for arriving or departing flights.

A wall of dust formed near Casa Grande and moved through Maricopa on Tuesday evening.

The dust then hit the Valley from the south and went from Chandler Lakes and through Ahwatukee.

The wall of dust is one of the bigger ones of the year. The pilot in our news chopper estimated the dust cloud was about 4,000 feet high and stretched from the San Tan Mountains to the Estrella Mountains.

There was also lightning spotted in the area.
