Someone here yesterday was saying there was a dust storm where they lived- they posted in the Melbourne earthquake thread
AUSTRALIAN weather officials are warning of another severe storm to sweep across the southern and eastern parts of the country tomorrow and Friday with the potential to create another dust storm. A dust storm blanketed Sydney today, disrupting transport, placing health authorities on alert for widespread respiratory illness and stripping thousands of tonnes of topsoil off Australia's main farmlands. The next storm could again whip up a dust storm, cause damage with gale-force winds and send temperatures plummeting enough to dump snow on Australia's alpine region. Scientists say if El Nino weather conditions continued in the western Pacific, then Australia's dry conditions and more dust storms can be expected.

So...it was like an orange night during the day or what?
