The Hornets’ digital media director Joseph Hutzler shot this footage, and told Storyful the shortstop, Nicole Riley, “said it just popped up at her back and ‘swallowed’ her up.” In the video, players are seen shielding themselves before the “dust devil” eventually dissipates after about 35 seconds.
