How did Hurricane Ophelia turn the sky yellow?
In October 2017, the sky in Great Britain similarly turned yellow and the sun turned red as a result Hurricane Ophelia.
The deadly storm killed three people as it pulled Saharan dust into the UK and created an orange cloud cover with its deadly 80mph winds
Hurricane Ophelia created an eerie glow, a red sun, and left behind a thick layer of dust.
Met Office forecaster Grahame Madge said at the time: “It’s all Ophelia related, on the east side of the low pressure system, air is rising in a southerly direction.
“Air is drawn in from southern Europe and Africa, and that air contains a lot of dust.
“So it’s very likely that the appearance of the sunset around noon is caused by the particles scattering the light and giving the appearance of a red sun.”
In the UK, up to 120,000 homes were without power, schools were shut and bridges were closed as a result of falling trees and debris caused by Hurricane Ophelia.
