KAWAIHAE, Hawaii (KHNL) - Check out these spectacular pictures taken Friday on Hawaii island. This dust devil made an appearance in the Kawaihae area. Tioni Lindsey-Maeda snapped these amazing photos at about 1:00 PM Friday.
Unlike the tornado that touched down here on Oahu this week, dust devils form from the ground up as rising warm air starts to spin. These weather features are usually harmless and form on hot sunny days in the islands.
