"Colorado Haze From Asian Dust"

Cloud Travels 10,000 Miles To Obscure Skies

DENVER -- There's a haze over Denver this week -- but it isn't that notorious "brown cloud."

Experts say it's a white cloud that traveled 10,000 miles from central Asia.

in early spring, the grass in central Asia isn't long enough to hold down dust, so the wind picks it up and carries it to other parts of the world.

Three years ago, a similar but much larger cloud settled on the Front Range and triggered health alerts after pollution levels sharply increased.

3. Well, That Explains Why We've Been Sufferring Lately in Pueblo County
It's been hazy and hard to breathe all week. And this may be the reason behind the sinus infection I've been battling all week.
