Sand Storm Photos - AL ASAD, Iraq (April 26, 2005)

You may have seen this a long time back but it hasnt been on my blog yet so here it is.

A massive sand storm hit a US Military Base just out of Al Asad, Iraq on the 26th April 2005. Below are some of the amazing pictures of the storm hitting town. The height was believed to be 4000-5000 feet and it lasted about 45 minutes leaving a thick layer of sand over the base.

Photos thanks to Gunnery Sgt. Shannon Arledge.
