Dust devil spins up in California

UPLAND, Calif. - Take a look at this! A dust devil caught on camera in Upland, California Monday afternoon.

The spinning funnel of dust may look like a tornado, but it's not. A dust devil usually forms under clear skies, unlike a tornado, which forms from what's called a supercell thunderstorm.

Dust storms usually form in areas of strong surface heating, like dirt roads, and they typically last for only a few minutes before dissipating.
