For the second time in as many days, a monsoon storm rolled across central Arizona Monday.
Spawning dust storm, severe thunderstorm and flash flood warnings, Mother Nature took a swipe at the Phoenix metro area as storm cells moved in from the east.

While this is the second big monsoon storm of the season, it's the first to reach the Phoenix area. 3TV chief meteorologist Royal Norman said this one could wind up being one of the biggest storms of the season.
The storm moved into the area of Sky Harbor International Airport at about 4:15 p.m.
"At this time we aren’t seeing any delays, but we are expecting some," spokeswoman Krishna Patel told Arizona's Family.

Video from the Lyons Roofing News Chopper at about 3:30 p.m. showed dark angry-looking clouds and a huge wall of dust bearing down on Mesa and Chandler from Apache Junction.
At the height of the storm, there were more than 60,000 SRP customers and about 20,000 APS customers without power.
There was a lot of damage reported at the Cielo Grande mobile home park at Broadway Road and 96th Street in Mesa. Awnings sprawled all over the ground with debris everywhere. Power was out for hours in the complex.
"Others have lost parts of their mobile, some of them have lost parts of the home so I'm just thankful it wasn't any worse than it was," said Audrey Burklund. "I was concerned. I wasn't scared. At 90 years old, you don't get scared anymore, you're ready to go."
Viewers in Gold Canyon, which is about 50 minutes east of Phoenix along U.S. 60, reported heavy rain and hail at about 3 p.m.

"Hail was reported at the US 60 and Crismon," according to a tweet from the Arizona Department of Transportation.
"I think this dust storm is going to push through the entire Valley," Norman said shortly before 4 p.m., explaining that the cells formed "right on our doorstep" just to the east. "Most of the Valley is going to see some dust if the thunderstorms don't overtake it."

Based on radar, outflow boundaries from the north and the east were on track to converge over central Phoenix, possibly creating a large thunderstorm complex ahead of the evening rush hour.
