Huge Sandstorms have hit the east coast of Australia.

The result has been a fine red sand that has made its way all the way to Sydney.

The storm has been caused by dry and windy conditions. Although it looks cool, the storm could cause problems to people’s health and people living in the area have been told to be careful outdoors.

Children with lung conditions such as asthma have been told to stay inside if possible.

The dust storm stretched for more than 500km and the air quality in the Australian state of New South Wales has dropped to ‘very poor’.

Sydney’s east and central coast both recorded the worst air quality for the state as the city was engulfed in dust.
