I just joined ATS to share this. I downloaded a 'endtimes FAQ' sort of .pdf document many many months ago, sharing safe locations in the event of a pole shift/any other cataclysmic event. The aforementioned document shares this:

Red Dust and Hail
The dusting with red dust should be considered a warning to take cover, under metal or sod roof structures, out of the wind. The shift cannot be more than a few hours away. The dusting with red dust occurs less than 24 hours, and most likely less than 12 hours. This depends upon a number of factors, including how well the dust drops through the atmosphere to be deposited on land where the very first evidence will be closely watched for and thus observed. In one location, the first sign of dust may be 18 hours ahead of the shift, and all run in panic to shelters. In another location, dust may not be noticed until heavy, perhaps 6 hours ahead of the shift, a good time to head for the shelters in any case. The tail sweep will then proceed from red dust to hail stones just ahead of the shift. A normal roof would protect from the hail stones, which will be like the hail experienced during violent windstorms, where hail of ice falls and ruins crop.

What do you guys think?

So, are you going to clean up New Zealand after the mess you've made?

The orange glow/red coming through the windows this morning I don't think i'll ever forget. It was so intense and unknown I cannot explain. Once you know what it is it's still wierd

Nope, OzWeatherman is going to do that job.

He said the dust came from just west of him, so i think he should clean up NZ and my house on the way though

There is nothing really strange at all about this, besides where it occurred.
Usually dust storms of this magnitude are confined to the outback. The cities usually get milder dust storms which don't turn the sky redish/orange.

Just a couple days ago, the town of Broken Hill in the outback was hit by storms and a dust storm. Power was knocked out to the major Olympic Dam mine nearby, some miners were trapped in a mine shaft lift about 1km down for a few hours. They also got a major dust storm similar to the one in Sydney.

And to be honest, the only reason a dust storm has made the news, is because it's Sydney. What ever happens in Sydney, the media thinks the rest of Australia gives a damn. Like we don't have our own lives and problems, we need to know about Sydney.

Didn't the Hopi natives say their prophecies of armageddon started off partially after people started seeing a red sky or some junk like that?

ARMAGEDDON!

(sorry, I couldn't help it after reading a post on the first page)

Bitter much?

How exactly did news of a dust storm in Sydney detract from your day huh? If it was that offensive to you couldn't you have simply TURNED OFF THE TELEVISION??

Get over it mate, drink some concrete and harden up.

There were some of these dust storms in the US last winter.



Nestled in the San Juan Mountains at 9,300 feet, and surrounded by 13,000-foot peaks, Silverton, Colo., seems an unlikely place for a dust storm, especially with two feet of snow on the ground. So Chris Landry was alarmed on the afternoon of April 3 when he spotted a brown haze on the horizon; an hour later, a howling wind had engulfed the town in a full-fledged dust storm, turning everything from the sky to the snow a rusty red.

"It was almost surreal," recalled Landry, executive director of the Center for Snow and Avalanche Studies. The landscape looked like Mars after the storm passed, he said: "You could feel the dust, you could taste the dust."

www.washingtonpost.com...

The dust is red because it's full of metal. The metal oxidizes, making it red. It settles to the earth, and is picked up through storms. Where is the dust coming from?

Chemtrails? Yuk!

Don't believe me. Get a sample of the dust. Test is for metals.

Very strange and spooky. I am definitely of the opinion it's a sign or omen... we just need some smart conspirators on here to figure out where it fits in.

This dust is different. Wait till you try to get it off your vehicles, houses.

It's sticky. Tastes like metal too.

I agree with what a member mentioned and that is for one of you guys to collect a sample of this dust just in case.

I believe a big mistake would be to go out in this with nothing covering your nose and mouth. I don't know if this could have the same effects as volcanic ash for example that when it gets into your lungs it forms into a hard concrete type stuff.

I would be very careful with my children and pets.

It might be cool to look at but it could also be deadly down the road.
