Melbourne, Australia Photograph by Wolfgang Sievers.
Do you remember this? 35 years ago today on February 8th, 1983, a massive reddish-brown cloud advanced on Melbourne. The dust storm hit the city around 3pm, dropping the temperatures dramatically, whilst wind squalls uprooted trees and unroofed houses. Visibility dropped to around 100m as the storm dumped approximately 1,000 tonnes of topsoil on the city. Credit: Australia Bureau of Meteorology/Photographer: Trevor Farrar
