Sky turns scary yellow as Hurricane Ophelia strikes UK

THE sky above Britain turned yellow today after a red sun was created by fatal Hurricane Ophelia.

The gales pulled Saharan dust north to the UK to create a blanket of orange cloud, with the deadly storms also bringing powerful 80mph winds – killing three people.

The layer of thick dust brought an eerie glow across the sky and turned the sun red as Hurricane Ophelia killer winds picked up dust and debris southern Europe and Africa.

Amid fears that the red sun could signal the end of the world, the Met Office has explained the real reason behind the red sun and yellow sky.

Earlier today the Met Office tweeted: “Ophelia has drawn Saharan dust north to the UK, making the sun appear red this morning.”

The most affected areas in the South West include Devon, Cornwall, Bristol and Somerset. It has even been seen as far north as Manchester and Liverpool.

Storm Ophelia brings an eerie red sun in skies above parts of England and Ireland.
