English term or phrase: it's raining sand
"**It's raining sand**
Mystified residents in Warrington woke to find their cars and houses covered in sand at the weekend.
The Met. Office received reports of 'coloured rain' and discovered that sand from the Sahara had blown for thousands of miles before coming down in the rain."

Can this title be translated literally? And would you use the verb "esik"? Thank you
