Today’s Image of the Day from NASA Earth Observatory shows thick plumes of dust from the Sahara Desert moving west over the Atlantic Ocean on June 28.

The dry, hazy air has drifted over the Caribbean and into Southeast Texas, where it will linger for the next few days. The air quality has been impacted and those with respiratory or heart conditions have been asked to limit their time outdoors.
