(TODAY NICARAGUA) The Sahara dust storm is a phenomenon that occurs every year between the months of June to August when the trade winds are strongest.
The annual dust cloud is part of the Saharan Air Layer, which is a mass of dry dusty air that forms over the Sahara Desert from late spring through early fall. It usually increases in activity from late June to mid-August, commonly bringing dust across the Atlantic.
Saharan Dust travels across the Atlantic Ocean to different parts of the world. … This time around, the dust levels are especially hazardous. This means visibility is impacted, those who suffer from respiratory illnesses should be on high alert and dust accumulation both indoors and outdoors can be expected.
Those with allergies, watch out.
