Quoting Zerohedge:  "First pandemic, then economic crash, morphing into social unrest, and now a massive dust storm?  Is America ready for the dust-apocalypse later this week?

A massive dust storm from the Sahara desert in Northern Africa traversed above the tropical Atlantic Ocean and is causing havoc in the Caribbean region, is expected to move into the Gulf of Mexico and Southern US later this week, reported The Weather Channel.

The plume of dust originated from the deserts of Western Africa last weekend and has now traveled more than 3,000 miles across the Atlantic Ocean to the Caribbean Sea.

Before and after pictures show the dust-apocalypse unfolding across parts of the Caribbean.

..."Here is an amazing comparison with a near perfect day to today. Looking east over the #VCBirdAirport, #Antigua towards the Atlantic. You can barely see beyond 3 miles," tweeted 268Weather.

Jeff Hardy via Twitter: "We are in the middle of a huge dust storm here in Puerto Rico. The dust has traveled nearly 6,000 miles across the sea from the Sahara."

'Godzilla' Sahara dust cloud headed for U.S.; could it make it to Michigan?

San Juan, Puerto Rico – A vast cloud of Sahara dust is blanketing the Caribbean as it heads to the U.S. with a size and concentration that experts say hasn’t been seen in half a century.

Air quality across most of the region fell to record “hazardous” levels and experts who nicknamed the event the “Godzilla dust cloud” warned people to stay indoors and use air filters.

“This is the most significant event in the past 50 years,” said Pablo Méndez Lázaro, an environmental health specialist with the University of Puerto Rico. “Conditions are dangerous in many Caribbean islands.”
