Dust storm rolls through Australian town in apocalyptic scene 'just like on Game of Thrones'


The town of Mildura, Victoria has been enveloped in a huge dust storm that resembles apocalyptic scenes covering the whole area in darkness today (May 7).

Captured at 4:57 pm (local time) the area was blanketed with the dust from the incoming cloud, blocking natural light due to the thickness and severity of the environmental phenomenon.

The filmer described the event as something "just like on Game of Thrones last night."

Victoria's Bureau of Meteorology issued a severe weather warning and tweeted: "Wind gusts reached 57 km/h in the storm"

They later added that other places: "had gusts up to 87 km/h."
