Dust Over Ghana and Ivory Coast - February 10th, 2012

An intense dust storm has been clouding the skies over West Africa over the last few days (click here for previous images). At the beginning of the month, the dust was concentrated over Mauritania and Senegal, then moved eastward over the Cape Verde Islands.

A few days later, shifting winds carried the Saharan sands southward over the Ivory Coast and Ghana, whose skies it has been clouding over the last three or four days. The coastline of these countries along the Gulf of Guinea is barely visible through the thick cloud of dust.
