Dust Storms

The classification of dust storms depends on how much area it covers, the visibility, and the distance traveled. Approximately half of the dust in today's atmospere results from human activity such as overgrazing and the cutting of forests. Some very arid regions have dust storms on windy days.

Dust storms are strong, violent winds that carry fine particles such as silt, sand, clay, and other materials for long distances.Dust storms occur in dry areas where loose dirt can easily be picked up-mainly deserts or regions of dry soil.The winds can reach up to 35 miles per hour. Dust can travel over 1,000 miles.
