A weather phenomenon shattered the Sunday relaxation at McCarren Park in Brooklyn.

A dust devil shook things up at the park known as Hipster Beach.

Videos are popping up on social media with some people comparing it to the rare double rainbow.

According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, dust devils usually occur on dry hot afternoons and typically do not hit high wind speeds.
