See the moment a dust and electrical storm cross paths in western NSW
AN INCREDIBLE dust storm image taken by a bloke named Stacy has gone viral.
Stacy Henman, of Wongalilli Station in outback New South Wales, was carting a silo when he spotted the phenomenal scene.
He was driving the truck with his nephew, who was playing on his iPad, when the system approached.
“I said ‘Jim, take a look at this’,” he said.
“I have been out this way for about eight years, but that’s the first time I have seen one like that.”
The pair got out and snapped some pictures before driving straight up the guts of the storm.
“It wasn’t that rough going through it actually, it was just a lot of wind,” he said.
Although the dust storm was followed with rain, Mr Henman said they only received 6-7mm on their sheep property, about 30km outside of White Cliffs.
He used the panorama application on his smartphone and his photo has since been viewed thousands of times on Facebook. He captured the shot with: “Good day to be carting a silo”.
