Watch the giant cloud of red dust

A bright orange dust-storm sweeping across the coast of Western Australia has been caught on camera.

Weather experts say the incredible sight of a 'red wave' from the sea was created as wind and rain dumped the sand and dust it had taken from the land.

Weather Enthusiast Steve Brooks from Perth said this cloud "was not related to the Narelle cyclone", which forecasters said was due to hit the area.

He said: "Thunderstorms happen most afternoons around this area across the Pilbara in Western Australia due to the extreme heat and instability in the atmosphere".
