Brisbane’s Dust Storm

As everyone is probably now well aware, Sydney and Brisbane got hit with a Dust storm today. Sydney had Dusty gateway - 1a Martian-style red dawn (without the commies) and Brisbane copped it around lunchtime. What people may not realise is that these two cities are about 1000 kilometres (or 621 miles) apart and it was the same storm…

 

By now it should be somewhere over New Zealand. This storm has been dumping up to 75,000 tonnes of dust per hour into the Tasman Sea.
