Another plume of Saharan dust is expected to inundate the Caribbean in the coming days
In an update today (June 25), the Miami based National Hurricane Center said “A plume of Saharan dust is noted across the tropical Atlantic generally from 10N to 24N east of 50W to the coast of Africa”.
“The stable airmass the dust is embedded in is limiting deep convection across this area”, the center said.
The dust poses additional health risks to persons who are asthmatic and have underlying heart conditions, the Health Ministry says.
Hazy conditions are expected by weekend.
