    Wow, and I thought the wind here in Texas sucked (or blew LOL). Those pix are awesome though it doesn't look very fun to live through it. How hard does the wind blow on a regular basis during one of these storms?

    We got a big dust storm here, (Regional NSW), but it was at night! So couldnt get pics, and it didnt look half as bad as Sydneys. However, what we DID get was a massive storm, which consisted of golf ball sized hail stones.. *shudders*. My poor dog freaked out something chronic- never seen a look of horror on an animals face like it. One hail stone went through our tin roof on the back veranda 0.o

    A strict meteorological definition of a terrestrial storm is a wind measuring 10 or higher on the Beaufort scale, meaning a wind speed of 24.5 m/s (89 km/h, 55 mph) or more;

    Dust storms have also been shown to increase the spread of disease across the globe. Virus spores in the ground are blown into the atmosphere by the storms with the minute particles then acting like urban smog or acid rain
