What is a dust storm?
Black Sunday April 14, 1935
Black Sunday, 14/4/1935
When and where did Black Sunday happen?
This is kind of sad, but a dust storm is when wind picks up dirt and dust, and whips around. It choked people, invaded peoples houses through the smallest cracks, and dominated the streets of any town it could lay its grubby hands on. Once it travels far enough it can rise 100 feet into the sky. That isn't the maximum height. Winds blow at 60 MPH.Once its over, everything is covered in dust. Avis D. Carlson said"The impact is like a shovelful of fine sand flung against the face". Sometimes,they come repeatedly. But, theyre always bad.
What did Black Sunday look like?
It was more like death-black. It was also dense, ominous, adding to the scare factor, it blocked out the sun. It left destruction in its wake. Finally it is extremely murky. If you see one of those, you're going to want to flip your car around and go home.

On April 14th, 1935, it ripped through Kansas, Colorado, Texas, Oklahoma, Nebraska, and New Mexico. It started around 4PM and didn't end until the next morning.
What did people who experienced Black Sunday feel about the event?
They were afraid that it was the end of the world, they thought they were doomed, they felt lost. But that didn't stop them. The howling winds only encouraged them to push forward, or try to survive. Blinded,too as reporter Avis D. Carlson quoted"People caught in their own yards grope for the doorstep. Cars come to a standstill, for no light in the world can penetrate that swirling murk". And very, very scared" The poetic uplift of spring fades into a phantom of the storied past. The nightmare is coming real.
All in all, Black Sunday was bad. It killed many people, and ruined the lives of even more. People lost everything they owned.
Well, it was probably as bad as Black Friday at Toys R Us. But, yeah, what you said.
