A man captured amazing video of a dust devil swirling over a gravel parking lot in Mechanicsville on Thursday.

WTVR CBS 6 viewer Ken said he shot the video outside E.J. Wade Construction.

CBS 6 meteorologists said the hot weather may have helped form the dust devil.

Experts said dust devils are relatively rare and happen when specific conditions take place.

“These things don’t happen very often," National Weather Service meteorologist Bill Goodman told Scientific American.
