Monster dust storm and gustnado on a violent HP supercell over Vojvodina, Serbia

A violent storm accompanied by very strong winds, massive dust storm and a gustnado hit Stara Pazova municipality of Vojvodina, Serbia around 12:00 UTC (14:00 CET) on September 17, 2017.

The storm lasted about half an hour, but the damage it caused was high. Local media report numerous downed trees and power lines as well as damaged homes and other infrastructure. Parts of the municipality were left without power for more than 24 hours.

The storm was accompanied by a massive dust storm:

The same weather system produced a large gust front tornado/gustnado in the neighboring city of Ruma.

The videos below show some of the damage produced by this unusually strong storm.
