UTAH COUNTY, Utah — A large whirlwind of dust and debris appeared in a Costco parking lot in Saratoga Springs Friday afternoon, shocking onlookers, as a storm was moving into Utah.
Shandail Edgerly captured it on her phone and shared the video above with FOX 13 News.

It did not appear to be a tornado, as Edgerly states in the video, but rather what's known as a "dust devil," because it starts on the ground. Tornadoes form in the clouds and move down towards the ground as they grow stronger.
