Sandy Dust Phenomenon Observed in DPRK
Pyongyang, March 18 (KCNA) -- Sandy dust swept over the northern inland areas and other parts of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea from Monday night to Tuesday morning.

The dust originated in the Great Gobi and the Inner Mongolian areas of China Sunday, due to the atmospheric low pressure and then high-level anticyclone from central Mongolia.

It moved to the DPRK areas through the northwest air stream in a high atmospheric layer, but its influence was very weak as it was accompanied by soft rain.
