Sandstorm

The desert - not a heavenly place, and the most that on is hell. Unbearable heat, virtually no sources of water, dangerous snakes and scorpions. However, this does not exhaust the entire list of threats to life, surviving in the wilderness. Sandstorm - a very common and life-threatening phenomenon. How to escape from a sand storm and we will discuss in today's article.

Desert - a vast space occupied by sand dunes. Neither your Forest, no mountains, no other barriers. If in the desert blowing a strong wind, he begins to raise dust in the air and carry it great weight. And this flow of sand is continuously growing, as there are no barriers. And the sand settles to the ground, but when the wind dies down and the storm passes. Get into a strong sandstorm - deadly.

Air flow and sand can knock you off your feet and buried his head in the newly formed dunes... Sand clogged the respiratory tract, eyes - you horseflies choke. The terrible death.

To be saved, it is important to notice the approaching storm on the horizon (you her with anything not confuse...) and find shelter. Shelter can serve any natural obstacle, however, in the desert - is a rarity. Good skin will fit a camel. If you got hold of such a thing possible, take it with you. In addition to protection from dust storms in the shoes comfortable sleep - not an example of hell sultry day, the nights are very cold in the desert, huge temperature contrasts. When a storm is approaching, you need to wrap the skin entirely. It is advisable to lie down behind the crest of the dunes, and to use it as an obstacle to the approaching storm.

If there is a large-scale protection in the form of tents, skins, big cloak - take the most impressive clothes, sit behind the crest of the dunes back to the approaching sandstorm. We must stick your head between your knees and cover wear.

Either way, everything will be backfilled with sand, he will be in the ears, nose, grit your teeth. But the simple methods and the correct technique of protection will not let you suffocate and be bombarded with in full.

Another danger of a sand storm - it can knock you out of the way. So protected from the elements, make for a reference, remember what position you have taken refuge and where to go at the end of the storm.
