Sand storm incomming
Description: Al Asad, Iraq April 27, 2005 A massive sandstorm cloud rolls over Al Asad, Iraq just before nightfall as Sgt. Michael A. Blaha and others watch from their tents. A sandstorm is strong dry wind blowing over the desert that raise and carriers clouds of sand or dust often so dense as to obscure the sun and reduce visibility almost to zero.
