SAHUARITA, AZ (Tucson News Now) - Some Rancho Sahuarita residents spent Tuesday evening cleaning up after strong winds and storms moved through the area.

"It was a wow moment, almost like watching a big wall of water coming," said Marc Zatarian.

Zatarian's backyard took a bit of a beating, with some lights strewn and a cover to his gazebo knocked off. He said he just got home when he saw a wall of dust moving towards the backyard.

"It looked like the haboobs you see in Phoenix, when it came in and then the wind," said Zatarian. "The trees all around started whipping around and then the gazebo behind us started catching win, and it tore up, obviously."

The wind wrecked a neighbor's landscaping, knocking a large tree over right in his front yard. A camera on his doorbell caught the moment on video.

There were no reported injuries from Tuesday's storm through the area.
