    A couple of years ago we were warned of some specific type of African Fly that would likely be hitching a ride on the prevailing winds, right?

    Welcome to the Caribbean. Paradise comes with a price! After the dust it will be hurricane season. Batten down the hatches.

    the good news is that the dust inhibits hurricanes.

    There was proof yesterday that the dust is already here in the air ..there was rain for about 5 minutes in the capital and afterwards you could see all the cars looking as if they had been driven along dirt roads. I suppose the rain drops pick up the particles of dust on the way down ..or is the dust in the clouds ..maybe someone can explain .

    Yes, but it doesn't inhibits allergy attacks, in fact it inflames them. lol

    Anyone that suffers from asthma should take extra precautions and take things as easy as possible.

    that must suck.............dust has been coming over these waters for millions of years..............is it the dust or the chemicals contained in the dust which enflames your asthma?

    Dust particles can irritate and cause inflammation to the lungs which is harmful to those (me) who suffer from asthma. Both dust and any chemical particles will cause this. I suffer from allergies and asthma..not fun.

    I saw lots of dust in the air near Luperon yesterday. As if it was a
    small forest fire.
