Dust storm warning

25/12/2015

Communities in the Barossa Valley region and surrounds are advised that a significant volume of dust is being stirred up by strong winds blowing in an east to south easterly direction.

The dust clouds closely resemble smoke as they contain ash and soot from the recent Pinery Fire.

The South Australian Country Fire Service (CFS) has received numerous calls from concerned members of the community.

At this time, we can confirm this is not a result of fire.

People in the dust-affected area are advised to close all doors and windows and stay indoors if you suffer from any respiratory or cardiac conditions.

Road users are advised to use caution on the roads as the dust may reduce visibility.

However, if you do see smoke or flames please call Triple Zero (000).
