Dust Devil Swirls Outside Texas McDonald's

A large dust devil swept dust and debris across the street outside a McDonald’s in Boerne, Texas, on Monday, September 12.

San Antonio resident Valerie Cervantes recorded this footage showing the dust devil swirling across Old Fredericksburg Road, with a McDonald’s sign visible nearby.

Speaking to Storyful, Cervantes said: “I thought it would dissipate but it just turned into a wider tunnel of debris.”

According to the National Weather Service, dust devils are created by “strong surface heating” and are generally smaller and less intense than a tornado. Credit: Valerie Cervantes via Storyful
