Did any of the rides or attractions at any park in Australia close yesterday because of the sand storm; especially in LPS? By the way I'm going to Dreamworld today, but it already looks like it's cleared up.

It wasn't a sand storm. It was 100km winds from the west picking up all the red dust etc I went outside and saw everything was covered in a fine red powder and it was like red fog everywhere lol I wouldn't like to be on any fast rides haha come back with a mouth and nose full of red dust haha

The news showed some footage of Luna Park, and the rides didn't appear to be operating, but having said that I believe Tuesday and Wednesday is the parks "closed" days, so the rides wouldn't have been operating anyway (unless we are in School Holidays, but I thought they started next week).

Here are a couple of photos I took from the front of my house at 7am when I go home from work. The first is with the "sunset" setting turned on the other on the standard setting. The third is my car. I had a bit of trouble finding my car when I left work because all of the cars in the car park looked the same. I am hoping the prediction of another dust storm for the weekend are incorrect as I washed my car yesterday and I don't want to have to do it again. Bussy

I was driving into the city around the time the storm was at its peak, understandably today I got around to washing my car- came inside and checked facebook and only then read about the predicted dust storm tomorrow. It will be a good week for window washer companies though aye

Have been hit by the dust 4 times now - once earlier in the week in Brisbane, then hit on fri\sat at Coffs coast, then another on the way back north earlier today, and arrived home to a dust blanket on everything we had cleaned from earlier in the week. Our BLUE pool blanket is ORANGE (and it was a hell of a job lifting it off the pool without letting all the scungy water fall into the pool).
