Today, the Amur residents observed the sky of orange color and the “dirty” rain of sand. As East Russia was told in the regional meteorological center, tons of dust and sand brought a cyclone from the deserts of northern China and Mongolia to the Amur region. A similar phenomenon is observed in the Amur region every year at about the same time.

“When there is still little vegetation, nothing prevents the sand from rising into the air. The visual effect of the orange sky occurs during the passage of a cloudy cumulonimbus front, the accumulation of dust and sand becomes more visible, ”said Elena Pechkina, Deputy Director of the Amur Hydrometeorological Center.

According to the metrologist, the dust should bring heavy rain to the ground. The nearest heavy rainfall is expected on May 20. The cyclone itself, which brought the dust cloud, shifts eastward, and soon such dirty precipitation is possible in the Khabarovsk Territory.
