CIUDAD JUAREZ – Residents of Ciudad Juarez claim having photographed an unidentified flying object only minutes before last Friday’s sandstorm, whose winds approached 90 kilometers an hour and created widespread chaos throughout the region.

Through the Facebook social network, a photograph was shared this Monday by subscriber Juan Carlos León, showing a sort of ring suspended in the sky with at least a dozen lights.

The user informed Norte Digital that the photo was taken by a young woman named Raquel Vargas, who provided him with the image.

León noted that Vargas is a skeptical individual. However, she managed to photograph the aerial shape moments before the weather phenomenon took place, and wanted to share it on the Internet.

Norte Digital contacted Vargas, who assured that said image was taken in the vicinity of Calzada del Rio, to the north of the city, in the direction of El Paso, Texas. “I was running an errand at a neighboring development and we heard something like a lightning bolt, but when we turned around, we saw that thing in the sky,” she said.

The phenomenon was seen by several local residents, who turned on their cellphones and photo cameras upon seeing the UFO. “When we left our home, in a matter of minutes, it was still in the sky and I managed to take a picture of it. Others did as well.”

Another local resident told Vargas that the lights resembled the ones seen when a night time game is being played at a stadium.

The “haboob” started only minutes after the strange aerial spectacle ended.

“There was a lot of wind and flying dirt after that, and we went away because the storm had already started,” she noted.

Last Friday, the wind gusts recorded achieved speeds of up to 85 kilometers per hour, prompting a mobilization by various rescue forces, Public Safety and Civil Protection, who reported to at least 37 emergency situations in a two-hour period.

Injuries, blackouts, toppled structures, fallen fences and trees, aside from traffic accidents and the momentary suspension of flights from the local airport, were the consequence of the zero visibility caused by the powerful winds.
