The Taranaki Daily News was inundated with calls this morning as people spotted the dust on their homes, cars and outdoor furniture in heavy downpours.

The dust was described by some as similar to a light dusting of fertilizer.

The fine gritty sand is believed to have come over from Australia where a large dust storm covered Sydney earlier this week.
