Huge dust storm hits Western Australia ahead of TC Yvette

A huge dust storm swept through the Pilbara region of Western Australia on Wednesday, December 21, 2016. 

The storm came ahead of Tropical Cyclone "Yvette" which formed on the same day. Parts of northwestern Australia have already seen 200 mm (7.9 inches) of rain in recent days and more is on its way.

Yvette is expected to make landfall over the Christmass weekend and some forecasts call for worst storm since Rusty of 2013.

The huge wall of dust was filmed by Caitlin U'Ren after driving right through it.
