Meteorologists Send Out Warnings About Massive Dust Storm Heading For The East Coast

More News For You

So far this year has been a crazy roller coaster ride with coronavirus, death hornets, not to mention the death of George Floyd that sent the country into the brink of another civil war. Just when it seems like things just couldn’t get any worse reports of something we have never seen in this lifetime is headed our way.

An unprecedented weather anomaly is set to hit the east coast in the very near future, and meteorologists are sounding the alarm, this is not a drill.

It’s not a hurricane, that would be too obvious. It’s much too warm for a blizzard. No, what we are dealing with is an enormous sand storm from 5,000 miles away.

The current Saharan dust episode is leading to the worst dust storm in the Caribbean in decades.

Over the weekend, Saharan dust moved into the Caribbean. By Monday, it had changed the tropical blue skies into a hazy brown-gray color.

On Tuesday, this sunset enhancing, blue sky limiting, tropical threat reducing dust plume continues its 5,000-mile journey toward the US.

This giant dust cloud spans over 2,000 miles, it’s simply enormous.

The dust layer is so thick you can see it on weather satellites. Astronauts have also gotten a good view of it from the international space station.

“We flew over this Saharan dust plume today in the west central Atlantic,’ Astronaut Doug Hurly tweeted on Sunday. “Amazing how large an area it covers!”

Satellite images of the dust have been circulating around social media.

Hopefully, this will be the last curveball that 2020 has to offer and the second half of the year is calm and peaceful.
