Sao Paulo hit by strong sandstorms

Sao Paulo

The town of Catanduva in Sao Paulo, Brazil was recently struck with a sandstorm that lasted for 20 minutes and caused significant damage to houses in the region. Sandstorms also affected other cities and towns in the state causing the sky to turn different shades of orange and brown.

The skylines across the state changed colour as strong winds combined with a drought hit the country. Experts believe that not all droughts are due to climate change, but excess heat in the atmosphere is drawing more moisture out of the earth and making droughts worse.

The world has already warmed by about 1.2C since the age of industrial revolution and temperatures will keep rising unless governments around the world make steep cuts to emissions.
