By BBN Staff: The National Hurricane Center’s Tropical Analysis and Forecast Branch informed that a second wave of Saharan dust has emerged off North Africa and is nearing the Caribbean.
Weather experts say that the abnormally large dust cloud is making the 5000-mile trek across the Atlantic, suppressing tropical development in the area.
The dust has even been nicknamed the “Godzilla Dust cloud” by experts due to its large size.
The first wave of Saharan Air Layer (SAL) arrived and caused dust plume over Belize on Tuesday.
The National Met Service said 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.
