Sand Storm in Al Asad, IRAQ

Some interesting pictures below. Al Asad is a USMC base, NW of Bahgdad.

Sand Storm, 26 April 2005. Al Asad, IRAQ

It's a wall of sand traveling at 60 mph.

At this point I'm running for cover.

This picture was taken 1 min later and its dark as night.

My friend is working in Kuwait and told me about a sand storm they just had on Thursday so i search for some pics to get and idea of what he saw. Your pics were excellent. I like how you got so close to the wall of sand. Great job

Wow, this is really a "Believe it or not"!
I live in Western Europe so I never experienced something like this, but I just met someone from Saudi Arabia online and he gave me this link. He said this is currently happening over there, for 10 days. Wow... :|
Nice capturing work!
