PHOENIX —

Another dust storm and thunderstorm blew through the Phoenix metropolitan area after heavy rain fell on many parts of western Arizona.

Winds from an approaching storm system around sundown Monday pushed a hazy brown cloud over most of the Phoenix area.

There were reports of some downed power lines and trees in Tempe, but no immediate reports of any injuries.

Arizona's monsoon season begins in mid-June and runs through Sept. 30 and has produced massive dust storms called "haboobs" in recent years.

Much of western Arizona was under a flash flood watch Monday.

The Mohave Daily News reported that rain in the Bullhead City area closed several roads Sunday as runoff deposited mud, rocks and debris in low-lying areas.
