Love Exploring Logo By Rachel Truman of Love Exploring | Slide 2 of 39: Parts of the Caribbean and the US were shrouded in an enormous cloud of Sahara dust in June 2020 as the storm rolled across the Atlantic Ocean from the African desert. Pictured here is a lighthouse in Havana, Cuba at sunrise, cloaked in dust during the billowing storm. The highly concentrated air plume was nicknamed both the "Godzilla" and the "Gorilla" dust cloud and is the largest and densest storm to be seen in half a century.
