'Crazy': Flagstaff Resident Records Video During Extreme Winter Conditions

A resident in Flagstaff, Arizona, posted video of the extreme weather locally on February 22, telling Storyful he’d “never seen weather like this” before.

The footage was by Flagstaff resident Marty Heilman, who said he filmed it near his home on Wednesday morning. “I’ve lived in Flagstaff for 30 years and I’ve never seen weather like this,” he told Storyful.

“The wind was blowing so hard and snowing so much that the snow actually hurt. We were literally getting blown backwards and sideways,” he added.

Damaging winds and falling snow would continue throughout Wednesday and would impact travel in the area, the National Weather Service said. Credit: Marty Heilman via Storyful
