Much of Eagle Mountain is a construction site, as it’s one of the fastest-growing cities in the state of Utah. With these construction sites comes a lot of dust, and thus the risk of dust devils. This video from FOX 13 shows a major dust devil that occurred in the city center of Eagle Mountain.
According to the National Weather Service, dust devils “are a common wind phenomenon and are dust-filled vortices created by strong surface heating… Typical dust devil diameters range from 10 to 300 feet and are about 500 to 1,000 feet tall. Usually, dust devils last only a few minutes before dissipating and usually make an appearance on warm, dry days.”
