Saharan dust arrives in Southwest Florida after a 6 thousand miles journey from Africa… Again!


Do you notice anything unusual about our sky today? If you look closely, you’ll see a slight orange haze above Southwest Florida over the next few days…. Because Saharan dust arrives in Florida.

Saharan dust arrives in Southwest Florida

The source of this orange haze is a layer of dry dusty air originating from the Sahara Desert that’s traveled over 6 thousand miles from Africa to South Florida!

It’s actually a fairly common occurrence in the middle of summer as these tiny dust particles get swept up into the air by dust storms in the Sahara and then picked up by the easterly winds in the upper atmosphere all the way across the Atlantic Ocean.

This Saharan Air Layer, or SAL, actually has some positive side effects as it crosses the Atlantic, helping to suppress the potential for tropical development by keeping the air dry and stable. This is one big reason why the tropics has stayed so quiet lately.

This haze was very evident around sunrise Wednesday morning looking east. The image below was taken around 7 a.m. from downtown Fort Myers.

Saharan dust can also have some visually stunning effects in the atmosphere, sometimes producing spectacularly colorful sunsets, so be sure to have your cameras ready in the evening!

When the Saharan dust arrives in Southwest Florida, it tends to reduce the number of storms that develop in the afternoon, however, the dust can also make the atmosphere more unstable aloft, which can give our afternoon storms that do develop more of a punch.

And if you’re worried about the dust causing problems with coughing or sneezing, these dust particles are typically suspended so high up in the air that it generally won’t cause any issues in low to moderate amounts.

Expect the dust to stick around for the next few days as a huge plume of it sweeps across the Caribbean and into the Gulf of Mexico through the weekend.

  1. RAW VIDEO: Holy Fire arson suspect gives interview prior to arrest | ABC7

    This guy is saying that he does not know how and when the fire started. His stuff inside his cabin started burning. His skin got burned, too. Then why police arrested him? He is a victim rather than a suspect.

    These Reptilian agencies make you a bad guy or a criminal easily. They do not allow you to talk. They keep talking to make you a criminal. I just complained a couple of librarians in a library about one guy next to me, talked on a cell phone under “No Cell Phone Zone” for more than one hour. We went to an office to talk about that. They keep accusing me complaining about it in a loud voice. While they keep talking and accusing me, they did not give me very much chance to talk about it. When I try to talk about it, they shut me up. This is their tactics. They create exceptions to let certain agent guy break the rule to talk on the phone. And no question asked. If you don’t like this library, go somewhere else. Once they determined to accuse you, they do not give you even chance to speak out.


    The volcano eruption beside sky resort in Chile remind me the volcano eruption beside sky resort in Japan. I guess it was this year, too. That eruption was only one time and lasted only few hours. I guess this is not a volcano eruption, but more like explosion in the Reptilian Secret Underground Base right under or beside the sky resort. Remember? Resort = The place reptilians enjoy with FAKE money they created.

    • Even black mud in Switzerland does not look like natural color. It looks like more volcanic mud, but they do not have volcano in Switzerland, then what? I guess that black mud is the melted material from Reptilian Secret Underground or mountain Base. Galactic Federation of Light melted their underground base with their Directed Energy Weapon.

      • At 4:27 So many UFO filled in sky? It looks so magical. Even there is a jelly fish UFO? But it is unfortunate that so many people are still in denial of ETs’ existence.


    A devastated army veteran’s family is demanding answers after the 41-year-old died under mysterious circumstances while in police custody and his organs went missing.

    What happened to Palmer’s organs – and why have they gone missing?

    His family hired a forensic pathologist to investigate the matter further.
    His family wants to know how his brain and heart were taken out of his body without notification.

    Reptilian Entities are harvesting human organs without telling people. If you become custody of Reptilian Entities, your organs might be harvested. We can never imagine how many inmates have been killed for organ harvesting or in this prison system run by Reptilian Entities. Some insider told me that they harvest human organs, especially from human children without anaesthesia in 3rd world.

    It is common that in a hospital where is operated by Reptilian Entities, they are going to harvest your organs without telling you. Many people do not realize that some of organs are missing after they are under surgery. You have never know that one or two organs are missing after surgery unless some other specialists who are honest (that is very difficult to find in this Reptilian World.) find those missing organs. Now wonder so many people die after surgery in a hospital. I will never go to a hospital where reptilian doctors and nurses are harvesting human organs. I would rather die at home.

    • Among reptilians, eating abducted humans and even eating own species (Reptilians eat reptilians) are common.

      British Royals ate a baby born in the couple, Prince Charles and Camilla just before Prince Charles married to Diana.

      Princess Diana’s body after the accident was dismembered, and served for dinner for British Royals.
