The Austrailian town of Charleville, southwest Queensland turned an apocalyptic red as residents captured jaw-dropping footage of rare dust storm enveloping the sky.

The storm, which was 124 miles wide, swept through the town and the outback leaving residents coated in orange dust.

The storm was reported to be so powerful that it ripped off road signs and destroyed trees and roofs.

Barry Sampson, a local resident described the storm as "an apocalyptic spectacle, it looks like the end of days here, it's quite scary."

Harry Clark, from Australia's Bureau of Meteorology, said: "We do see a fair few dust events through the western parts of Queensland because it is such a dry and hot place, but it's definitely one of the more impressive events of the last few years."

The storm was so powerful that it ripped off road signs, damaged trees and roofs.

Local authorities said that the hot conditions resulted in dirt being picked up and spread across the town.

"We do see a fair few dust events through the western parts of Queensland because it is such a dry and hot place, but it's definitely one of the more impressive events of the last few years," said Harry Clark, from Australia's Bureau of Meteorology.
