dust storm 3

These photos were taken at 11:10am at Toowong, Brisbane. The dust storm started to look visible around 10:55am.

According to News.com.au, “A DUST storm that left Sydney a bright orange and caused misery for airline passengers has settled on Brisbane and is spreading across the state.”

“Passengers wishing to cancel their domestic flights today will be offered a refund or the opportunity to change their booking without penalty,’’ a spoke person said.

“the dust haze probably wouldn’t clear in Brisbane until this evening, after it had blown off the coast. ”

I submitted my photo to editor of News.com.au.

It’s yellow, so visible.. even inside my room. I never seen anything like this, definitely one cool experience! A bit eerie, though.. ok I declare a holiday for myself today. Hahahaha.

Update #1: 12pm

I am going out for a quick jog, anyone wanna join me?

Update #2: I think I saw something
