Sahara Dust Cloud Bathes Southern Spain in Orange

Skies were tinted orange across southern Spain on Tuesday, March 15, as Storm Celia brought dust from the Sahara desert into the Spanish air.  The Climatology Laboratory at the University of Alicante said on Tuesday that Spain currently had the “most unfavorable” air quality of any country in the world, topping China and India.  According to the climatology laboratory, the “eruption” of the Sahara dust would increase on Tuesday, but is forecast to slowly decrease throughout Wednesday.  This footage was taken by Twitter user @_Lu_jpg, who said it was filmed in the Almería province on Monday.  Credit: @_Lu_jpg via Storyful
