Yellow Dust from China Blows Into South Korea



The skyline of Seoul, South Korea, can right now be seen through the haze of a sandy yellow dust blowing in from China.

The Korean Meteorological Association says the dust originated in the deserts of southern Mongolia and northern China, and blew into Korea on a strong wind over the weekend.

They've posted dust advisories across the country and increased that to a dust warning for Seoul -- advising people to wear masks if they have to go outside.
