National Meteorological Service issues advisory on the Saharan dust plume

Posted: Tuesday, June 23, 2020. 4:04 pm CST.

By BBN Staff: Today, the National Meteorological Service issued an advisory on the Saharan dust plume.

The thick dust cloud, known as the Saharan Air Layer (SAL) has been supporting hazy and dry conditions, decreased visibility, and reduced air quality over much of Belize and the Caribbean.

The met service says that SAL is expected to continue producing hazy and dusty conditions over Belize through to next week, with a temporary break at the start of the weekend.

Persons with respiratory or heart disease, elderly persons or children should take precaution, stay hydrated, wear protective gear and avoid outdoor activities as much as possible and seek advice from their health care provider to stay adequately protected from the dusty and dry conditions.
