AFRICAN DUST-  Well if you’ve noticed the sky looking a little hazier than usual, it’s because of dust in the atmosphere.  Over the weekend a second wave of African Dust has blown in through the Gulf of Mexico and into the Red River Radio listening area.  Jason Dunion is a scientist with  the  National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association---he says  this is African Dust Storm Season but we  often don't notice it.
