Dust
« on: April 06, 2012, 12:33:37 pm »
I have heard that there are large dust storms from China in spring. Yet I have yet to see one in Geoje Island.

When do they come and what is the best way to deal with them?

Just buy a dust mask and shut all doors and windows?

Spring, and to a lesser extent, autumn.
The yellow dust can be pretty bad, especially further north around Seoul, but seeing as you're wayyy down south it shouldn't be too bad unless u have allergies or have asthma etc.
I live not too far from Daegu, and I have never really noticed the yellow dust days (and I do a lot of cycling) so I think it really depends on your particular location and where the local weather comes from.

And from what I've read, it seems that the locals do exactly what you mentioned: wear one of those masks and keep your home as airtight as possible.

I also live on Geoje Island, you don't really see clouds of dust flying around, but if you look at the cars you will definitely see its presence.  I do recommend closing your windows, our luggage which was left in the laundry room turned a lovely yellow colour :( last year.
A mask isn't a bad idea if you suffer from any breathing problems.  I think we are pretty lucky here on Geoje it doesn't seem to be affected as badly as other parts of the country when it comes to yellow dust.
