Thick dust storm blankets Sydney, causing flight delays

A photographer takes pictures of the Sydney Harbour bridge as a dust storm blankets the city Sept. 23, 2009.


A thick blanket of dust settled over the city of Sydney Wednesday morning causing flights delays, Sydney Morning Herald reports.


The dust storm blanketing Sydney is causing mayhem for airline passengers, with flights into and out of the capital delayed and diverted.

An outback dust storm swept across eastern Australia and blanketed Sydney on Wednesday, disrupting transport and placing health authorities on alert for widespread respiratory illness.

All domestic flights on the busy Melbourne-Sydney route are experiencing delays this morning while at least four international flights into the harbor city have been diverted to Brisbane.

Winds up to 100 km/h are also expected to hit Sydney later this morning, Australian Associated Press reports Wednesday morning.

The thick red dust has blown in from central Australia and western New South Wales and visibility is reported to be down to just ten meters at Broken Hill.
