breaking News...Dust Storm in Australia

Australia, wednesday 23 of September 2009 As British science fiction writer John Wyndham might have said, when people in Sydney wake up to a sky from Mars, something is seriously wrong somewhere... A huge outback dust storm swept across eastern Australia today, leaving most of New South Wales, including Sydney shrouded in a thick red cloud of dust.Flights were diverted and Sydney's iconic ferries were disrupted as city dwellers woke to deep red skies with visibility down to a few metres, and thick dust coating cars, buildings and beaches.The emergency services were inundated with calls from people fearing a major bushfire in the city while dust particles triggered scores of fire alarms and, in one Sydney train station, an emergency evacuation.

...this Morning I didn´t know if I was awake or Dreaming...

"The winds at times during the morning will average 65kph, which is gale force, with some stronger squally gusts up to about 90-100kph."

The dust reduced visibility across the city and large parts of the state, with callers to ABC Radio saying the scene looked like something from the end of the world.

The bureau has issued a severe weather warning for damaging winds in Sydney and other parts of NSW, with a gale warning issued for Sydney closed waters.

'Like Armageddon'

Karen from Dulwich Hill, in Sydney's inner west, says she woke up to find the red dust had covered her floors and birds had been blown out of their nests.

"It did feel like Armageddon because when I was in the kitchen looking out the skylight, there was this red, red glow coming through," she said.

Mick told ABC Online: "In Sydney's south-western suburbs I've just woken up to a glowing red window! Thought it was Armageddon! Either that or South Korea [sic] had nuked us!"

Another ABC Online contributor wrote in: "Red. Dusty. Making hard to breath... There are baby birds dead in our backyard. And our cat's gone missing."

Another listener says her lakeside vista has been replaced by a desert view. Others have commented on how birds are struggling to cope with the haze, with some "falling out of the sky".

Another said: "I went out for a ride on my bicycle and I ended up looking like a red panda."

Caller Mary spoke about a dust storm she saw in 1939: "I was 13 years of age and I lived in Leichhardt," she said. "I remember I walked to my aunt's place and you couldn't see your hand in front of your face. The colour was a sort of yellowy-brown."

cheers Ale! we are okay, thanks God. just some people with problems of asma and some trees falling down, but nothing else.

Anyway, I think is too rush to say nothing happen, I feel like this storm is just an "advice"...a signal, we need to open our eyes and listen the mother nature and what she want to say

Kisses back Aleli and keep in touch

Greetings back Gabriela... was really incredible, and not just one day...two times!

it is just a not usual phenomenom .....or another signal?

★ Crazy Drile™ said...

Sawasdee krab Phung! nice to see you here!

was really amazing storm, a dream...

all the sky was red and looking like Mars, and then the dust everywhere... but thanks God, any death or something more serious, just some people with Asma and problems for breath but not more than that.

Saludos Elinge! gusto verte por acá nuevamente!

Increible, pero cierto! las fotos no tienen ningún efecto Elinge, son simples fotos incluso sin flash... 100% reales de la tormenta... ese dia a las 5 am desperté y pensé que era realmente el Apocalipsis.... no sabia si era noche o día y no podía respirar... realmente una experiencia que pocos pueden vivir

Hay que estar atentos a las señales que nos envia la Naturaleza... no creo que esto sea solo un simple fenomeno

Un gran abrazo desde Australia Elinge...mantente en contacto y saludos a España!
