Image Caption: This oblique view of the Sahara Desert, exact location unknown, shows a large dust pall covering several thousands of square miles. Certain localities in the Sahara Desert are known to generate dust storms every few weeks although few grow to this magnitude. Dust from such clouds often wafts out over the Atlantic Ocean and, on unusual occasions, can even reach the Caribbean and the United States.
