A dust storm in Australia has given a new meaning to the phrase, "paint the town red."
Australia's entire east coast, including Sydney, was blanketed by the worst dust storm in more than 60 years.
The dust cloud of red outback grit nearly closed Sydney Airport, which is the country's largest airport.
"The color was amazing," one resident said. "I'm 72-years-old and I've never seen that in my life before. It's the first time ever. So, it's really a phenomenon."
No one was seriously injured during the storm, but a lot of people were coughing as they walked along city streets.
