Apocalyptic Saharan dust cloud to descend over Europe as thunderstorms to rock continent


According to the World Meteorological Organisation (WMO), a UN body, as well as causing a nuisance for anyone who forgets to close their window, the minerals and compounds can affect the composition of clouds and their ability to absorb solar radiation.

The dust particles carried by the storms can also have deeply damaging effects on human health, depending on how large they are.

Larger particles that cannot be breathed in typically cause skin and eye irritations and increase the likelihood of eye infections, WMO says.

Inhalable particles have been associated with breathing disorders such as asthma and pneumonia, but even finer particles may enter the bloodstream, where they can affect the internal organs.
