I've never seen anything like this...


Sydney has been enveloped by an incredible dust storm.

It's amazing. Eerie.  Disturbing.

I'm just so surprised that people were still out exercising in this; even inside our air-conditioned office the dust is present.

The sad thing is too, that this is precious top soil from west of the Blue Mountains, an area that is still very much in drought.  Another blow for the already struggling farmers.

That is so eerie. The pictures are amazing, it looks so alien.

I take it there are high winds keeping all the dust up in the air?

The winds are gale force at the moment, and expected to remain so for several hours. There will be lots of cleaning up to do after this.
