Residents Thrown Into Panic As Major Dust Storm Engulfs Emali

By Mwende Kasujja

Kenyans online on Thursday shared images of a major dust storm which they said was at Emali along Mombasa road.

Those who shared the images warned motorists of a high likelihood that the major highway would have poor visibility.

A dust storm is a meteorological phenomenon common in arid and semi-arid regions and takes place when a gust front or other strong wind blows loose sand and dirt from a dry surface.

They are common especially in northern Kenya where in April this year, a similar phenomenon was experienced in Marsabit.

The Thursday occurrence happened as many parts of the country experienced the start of the short rains.

Dust storm reported in Emali Area resulting in limited visibility along Mombasa Road. Exercise caution.
