Sandstorms strike Beijing

Sandstorm strikes BeijingThis evening Beijing has been struck by a sandstorm during the Mid Autumn festival celebrations.

It is a clear reminder of the dry climate and dry environment Beijingers confront every day. However with the huge amount of planting and watering going on around Beijing it is easy to forget the nature of the true climate and environment.

Sandstorms normally occur in Beijing during Spring, so it is easy to understand everyone's feelings of surprise.
