Sandstorm Blankets Parts of Saudi Arabia


The Kingdom saw horrific weather this week. Here are some snaps people shared online.

Many Saudi residents started off their week with not-so-great weather. Many parts of the country were covered in clouds of sand.

The sandstorm,  named Madar by the Committee for Naming Saudi Climate Conditions, originated in Libya before making its way over to the Kingdom.

The storm caused very low visibility and traffic all over. The strong winds reached up to 55km per hour. It caused many schools to shut down and flights to be cancelled.
