Desert storm engulfs town
By TRACEY KANDOHLA
A HUGE dust storm dwarfs cars and buildings as it blows in from the Iraqi desert.
At one stage the vast cloud of debris measured almost 5,000ft in height, according to weathermen.
The dramatic pictures were taken by US Marines who were patrolling the town of Al Asad when the storm struck.
It left a cloud of dust that stretched almost 80 miles.
The dust clouds are caused by heavy lorries breaking up the surface of the desert.
