SURFS UP DESPITE THE RED DUST
Despite a massive cloud of red dust turning Sidney into a Martian landscape, and causing widespread mayhem it would appear the beach and water beyond is still drawing a healthy number of hardcore regulars still willing to brave the waves with boards and boats. With international flights being diverted to other major cities, emergency calls to attend breathing difficulties escalating into the hundreds most places would be in a state of panic. Not so Aussie’s largest City.
It would appear the locals have taken it in their stride, with many using the freak weather as an excuse to actually take a day off. Camera activity is obviously one of the main attractions with countless amateur photographers snapping once in a lifetime pictures of their beloved city. With no casualties reported as yet. It would seem that despite financial and collateral damage the dust storm is being treated as a bizarre and strangely welcome change to the usual spring weather.
