    A dust storm, also known as a sandstorm, is a meteorological phenomenon that occurs when strong winds blow loose sand and dirt from a dry surface into the air. Fine particles are transported by saltation and suspension, a process that moves soil from one place and deposits it in another. Dust storms are common in arid and semi-arid regions and can cause significant health hazards, including coughing and respiratory issues, as well as disrupt daily activities and infrastructure.
