Dust Devil


We just learned that about the type of storm called a supercell.

Another thing like a tornado is called a dust devil.

These are spinning air that happens without any kind of a thunderstorm around.

Since they happen a lot in the day time, some people in the past thought they were like ghosts.
In the middle east they are sometimes called djin, the word for genie.
