Mumbai: Mumbaikars
woke up to a dusty haze over the city today, which the Met Dept attributed
to a dust storm in Rajasthan deserts.

"There is a dust storm in
Rajasthan and its effects are being noticed here. Northerly winds are
carrying the dust," Rajeev Nair, director of Met Dept, told.

"Once
the wind speed increases, the dust haze will disperse. We expect that to
happen by evening or at most by tomorrow morning."

Those allergic
to dust should be careful," he said, adding that similar dust haze was
also reported from parts of Gujarat and areas north of Mumbai, such as
Dahanu.
