That would be very disturbing if you didn't know the cause.

Of course it would be difficult to know what the contents of the dust are also.

Not very nice we get one every now and again, there are some photos on the Tygum thread from one that hit Brisbane a couple of years ago, that had picked up dust from Maralinga

I found this article which made me laugh

I would hate to think what has been picked up in the Chineese dust, no accountability there at all for pollution

Karl, I got to go through one once in the Washington desert. Amazing! Think of the worst rain or hail storm you've ever been in. Change the gray to brown, and note that you choke on the dust instead of have it make puddles (actually, it did puddle in the parking lots).
