Moree residents capture photos of dust, smoke haze

Moree was one of many areas across the state blanketed in a dusty haze on Wednesday this week's strong winds combined with the dry conditions.

Strong winds on Tuesday picked up the dust blowing over Canberra before it slowly blanketed much of the state.

The dust, combined with smoke from the devastating Tingha fire - which has burnt through well over 12,000 hectares in the Tingha, Old Mill and Stanborough area with no sign of slowing down, and so far destroyed six homes and damaged five - left Moree with covered in a smokey pink haze on Wednesday.

We asked our readers to send us their photos of the dust haze, and the above gallery was compiled with what was sent in.

If you took a great photo of the dust or smoke, send it to and we'll add it to our gallery.
