(TheWeatherSpace.com) – Phoenix has seen its fair share of dust storms and thunderstorms this season, far more than most. However, on Tuesday one of those storms created a major pile-up, killing one and injuring many on Interstate 10 between Phoenix and Tucson.

TWS Senior Meteorologist Kevin Martin warned people in Arizona that severe thunderstorms would hit and a severe thunderstorm watch was needed for the area. There was no severe thunderstorm watch issued for Phoenix residents.
