PASADENA, Calif. (KTLA) — Three people received minor injuries in what was described as a “dust devil” event at the Rose Bowl on Wednesday, a day before the big game.

The incident occurred in the fanfest area outside the Pasadena stadium, according to a witness’ video posted on YouTube. The video showed pop-up tents blowing into the air and debris circling overhead.

The winds left people screaming and running, including one person dressed in a cow costume.

The incident was not a tornado but more like a “dust devil,” Ryan Kittell of the National Weather Service said after viewing the YouTube video, KTLA.com said.
