Dust Storm

We just learned about what a sand storm is.

Another type of weather is a dust storm.

It is a lot like a sand storm, but instead of a big rolling cloud of heavy sand, it is more like a fog of dust all around everything, sometimes as high as one mile off the ground.

It is dangerous to be outside breathing the air in a dust storm, and the dust can ruin crops and machines, and even spread diseases all over the world.
