Sand Fountain

This blurry YouTube video shows a strange phenomenon in Saudi Arabia: a 9-meter (~30 feet) tall sand fountain or geyser near the city of Al Ahsa. Notice that the sand don't mound up, as if there is a giant hole underneath that just churn up the sand particles. If anyone know what this is, please let us know!

Here is a video that sort of corroborates raincoaster.
You can see the flashes from lightning.
