Sydney, Australia Dust Storm
The scene was quite surreal this morning in Sydney, Australia as residents awoke to an orange glow outside their windows. The glow was the result of a massive dust storm that blew into the city from the drought stricken mid-section of the country. Some were shaken by the scene thinking that a catastrophe was upon them like a bush fire or even a nuclear explosion according to one resident. Here's a link where you can watch an 8 minute long news report from Channel 10 in Sydney about the morning's dust storm. If I'm understanding my time line correctly, the dust storm was hitting the area on September 23, but was occurring around 4:00pm September 22 here in Indiana. Sydney is 14 hours ahead of Indiana.
