Has The City Been Hit By A Dust Storm?

March 21, 2012 2:44 pm by

There are reports filtering in from around the city that we might be experiencing a dust storm. From where we’re sitting, the street outside looks decidedly hazier and browner than usual for 3.30pm. Of course, the Met department has reported that the “sky would be mainly clear” today. Anyone else seeing what we’re seeing?

    Similar weather in Kutchh region of Gujarat yesterday.
    Incidently, read this http://gizmodo.com/5895086/how-can-this-aircraft-supercarrier-be-in-the-middle-of-a-desert-storm just 20 mins back and seems like its been travelling from somewhere in the Middle East over the Arabian Sea, into the north western coastline of India.

    This dust storm has hit Delhi too! It was terrible yesterday. Though it’s tad better today, some dust still remains :-/
