Sahara sand cloud reaches US coast

Sahara sand cloud reaches US coast

A huge stream of dust from the Sahara desert reached the Caribbean coast, covering more than 3,000 km. A cloud of sand approached the American south.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration discovered the formation of a sandy air front over the Sahara on June 7, in satellite imagery over Africa. A colossal cloud of dust was formed by powerful winds lifting small particles into the air. Now this cloud has reached the Caribbean Sea, passing through the Atlantic Ocean. Now it is moving inland Florida, to Georgia and South Carolina.

This phenomenon usually forms between late spring and early fall each year. A cloud of dust can cause problems for people with respiratory illnesses as it brings drought and dust.
