Dust storm creates havoc – photos


“I have never been in a dust storm like that and never want to again”

Ronda Collins was travelling from Port Lincoln to Whyalla, via Cleve, when she encountered the violent dust storm which covered the Eyre Peninsula on July 2.

“The closer we got to Arno Bay the thicker the dust got, once we turned of the highway heading towards Cleve it got very bad all we could see was thick orange dust and could not see one-foot in front of us,” she said.

“We had to pull over on the side of the road for 30 minutes until we could see enough to drive into Cleve.

“While we where sitting there the front of my van was sand blasted enough that it took all the chrome off the front.”
