Graveyard is not only a burial ground for human; but it is also a place where worn-out or obsolete equipment or objects are kept.

And there are an aviation graveyards in the United States of America which are full of abandoned aeroplanes.

Photos Of August 18, 2011 Dust Storm Around Phoenix, Arizona

22 08 2011

A giant wall of dust hit Metropolitan Phoenix  for the third time within the last six weeks.

The dust storm, known as a haboob, was 1,000 feet high and traveled at least 50 miles into metro Phoenix and neighboring Pinal County on Thursday evening.

Weather experts said such huge dust storms only happen in Arizona, Africa’s Sahara desert and parts of the Middle East.

Flights were delayed and some people were without electricity because of the dust storm.

Homes were damaged, roofs were torn off businesses, trees landed on top of homes and a junior high school has part of its roof missing in the city of Eloy, in Pinal County.

Pollution levels was very high during dust storms and caused breathing problems for people with asthma and other similar conditions.
