A miniature whirlwind or dust devil* was sighted near Ercan airport yesterday.

Spectators watched with amazement as the column of dust made its way across the land. No damage was reported.

*Dust devils are a weather phenomenon of a vertically oriented rotating column of air. They form as a swirling updraught under sunny conditions during fair weather, rarely coming close to the intensity of a tornado.
