A dust storm in Texas made the traffic shut down in certain areas of the state. The storm was accompanied by strong gusts of wind, which reached almost one hundred kilometers per hour.
Therefore, many trees were felled. Residents living in the areas affected by the dust storm were advised to be aware of fallen power lines and chaotic traffic conditions (see first part of video1 below).
A kayaker in Southern California captured some astonishing personal images during a close encounter with a blue whale. The size of the animal is featured in the above and underwater footage (see second part of the video1).
