Dust Storm in Sudan Sends Sand into Chad and Central African Republic

Chad and Central African Republic - May 12th, 2009

Dust originating in Sudan blows southwest into Chad and the Central African Republic. This dust is probably from the same haboob, or dust storm, that has been affecting Sudan, Ethiopia and Eritrea over the last few days (click here for previous articles).

Although the majority of the dust kicked up by the storm seemed to be blowing eastward, towards the Red Sea, wind currents blowing in the opposite direction have also carried the dust to Sudan’s western neighbors.
