Desert Sand Storm

The sand in the air looks like fog but unlike fog it stings the skin and hurts your eyes

Calama, Chile, looks like a ghost town as high winds on July 31, 2011, whip up sand

It's daytime but vehicles are forced to drive slow with headlights on and windows up. It's tough to stay outside in these conditions.
