Cyclone Gaby brings sand and dust to Europe

Meteosat Europe produced a spectacular image of Cyclone Gaby over the Sahara Desert today.  You can see it below.  The winds associated with this storm are pulling air from the Sahara Desert and blowing sand and dust across the Mediterranean and into parts of Europe.  You can see some pictures of the dust in several locations and read about the weather there at http://strangesounds.org/2016/03/expect-red-rain-europe-sahara-sand-cyclone-gaby-mediterranean-sea-pictures-video.html.
