[Gnews Beijing, March 28, 2021] Widespread sand and dust weather will occur in northern China due to the influence of the eastward moving Mongolian cyclone. The dusty weather process will affect about 15 provinces.
Among them, Beijing will be affected by sand and dust for more than 12 hours. There will be sand and dust storms from this morning to daytime, with a minimum visibility of about 1000m.
Beijing Meteorological Station has issued a yellow warning signal for sandstorms as well as a blue warning signal for high winds. According to the Beijing Meteorological Bureau, the wind will strengthen in Beijing today with northerly winds of 4 to 5 with gusts of 7 to 8 and up to 8 to 10 in mountainous areas.

This is the second time this year that Beijing has been hit by a strong sandstorm.

In response to the dusty weather, Chinese netizens are asking why the Three Northern Protective Forests have not “stopped” the dust.
