Sandstorm on the west coast

I received a photograph taken between Port Nolloth and Alexander Bay during the recent freak weather there associated with the cut-off low pressure system.  It shows an approaching sandstorm – an event that is not often seen, even  in that part of the world. Apparently it was followed by a violent electric storm that knocked out power over most of the region. Thank goodness we don’t get similar events here in Hermanus!
