A massive dust storm hovered over central New South Wales in Australia on New Year's Eve (December 31).
Bronwyn Alder, who filmed the footage, told Reuters she has not seen anything like it. The cloud of red dust arrived in Boona Mount at around 4:30pm local time (0530 GMT).
Australia's Bureau of Meteorology (BOM) had issued a severe weather warning for the area. Local media reported that a New Year's Eve fireworks was cancelled due to poor weather.
