Sydney Dust Storm Map

On Wednesday morning Sydney, Australia awoke to a red haze. The haze was a dust storm blown in from the desert outback. The dust storm stretched hundreds of kilometres along the coast of Australia.

Air pollution levels from the dust were the highest recorded since records began in the 1970s, with 15,500 micrograms of particles per cubic metre. This Google Map is a collection of a number of YouTube videos of the storm, shot in and around Sydney.
