China dust storm could possibly hit Taiwan on Oct 30 and 31

A dust storm is forcast to possibly hit Taiwan today (October 30) until October 31.

Central Weather Bureau (CWB) director of Meteorological Research and Development Center sourced a dust storm covering a vast portion of eastern China. CWB warned that based on current weather patterns, the dust storm could hit Taiwan.

Dust storms bring strong, dry winds bringing a wall of dust reducing visibility from lingering haze.

CWB assured the public that some portion of the dust will be filtered out by a band of clouds and rain and that the impact should be limited, "so people should not worry too much."

A dust storm is a phenomenon common in arid and semi-arid regions. Dust storms arise when a gust front or other strong wind blows loose sand and dirt from a dry surface.
