Weekend Obscured By Saharan Dust Cloud

Jun 30, 2020

A dust cloud from the Saharan Desert is leaving the Omaha area today.  The Environmental Protection Agency ranked dust in Nebraska and western Iowa high enough to advise those sensitive to air pollution to stay indoors Sunday.  The Air Quality Index shows the cloud particle matter reached 140, just ten points under what's considered unhealthy for people with lung and heart conditions.
