    Massive dust cloud from the Sahara Desert is headed towards the US

    Just when we thought that 2020 couldn't come up with any more crazy headlines, try this one on for size. There's a massive dust cloud floating its way towards North America on some warm air blowing off the Sahara Desert.

    Don't get stressed though, there's not much to be worried about. Meteorologists say all the hot dry air moving over the ocean is pretty common for this time of year.

    A massive plume of dust from the Sahara desert in northern Africa has been traversing the atmosphere, thousands of feet above the tropical Atlantic Ocean, and is now cloaking the Caribbean and closing in on the southeastern United States.

    While summer dust plumes are a common occurrence, this appears to be one of the most extreme in recent memory. It's so large it has been nicknamed the Gorilla Dust Cloud

    She was the tyrant boss that overstepped her legal boundaries with senseless, draconian restrictions in the "stay at home" covid stuff. She would love to have another crisis to saddle up and ride herd on.
