Gibraltar's skies turn orange with the arrival of the 'Calima'

Gibraltar's skies turned orange today with the arrival of the 'Calima' - a Saharan dust storm spreading across Iberia, depositing muddy waters on roads and surfaces.

Just over a week ago a similar dust storm arrived over Southeast Iberia bringing similar scenes, depositing dust and affecting air quality, and which went on to affect much of Western Europe.

According to MeteoGib, the same weather set-up is responsible for bringing this new dust storm, with low pressure to the Southwest and with strong winds over the Sahara.

The rain has deposited the dust all over Gibraltar, with streets and vehicles covered in orange mud.

The remarkable scenes have been widely shared on social media with people sharing 'no filter' pictures of the orange skies and the dust clouds.
