The capital of Saudi Arabia Riyadh and its environs were covered by a powerful dust storm. According to Channel Five, visibility has practically dropped to zero.
The footage published by the publication shows that the sun has disappeared behind a huge cloud of sand, and the sky has become blood red. The situation in Riyadh is reminiscent of the Martian Chronicles.
It is noted that a dangerous and unpleasant phenomenon has become common in the Middle East. Because of the sand that penetrates even when the windows are closed, it becomes a real nightmare for local residents.
Dust storms were reported in Kalmykia in April.
