It is over and we have survived it. We just went through three days of what was one of the biggest sandstorms in the recent Saudi Arabian history.
From flight cancellations to school closures, it definitely had an impact. What many living in the major cities of the country have not seen is the magnanimity of the sandstorm. From places that were the worst affected, we’re hearing stories of how the sandstorm came in rising from the deserts.
The sandstorm, named Madar, started off in Libya and passed through Egypt before arriving in Saudi Arabia. In some places, it came in apocalyptic sizes.
Here are some photos of the sandstorm that will definitely not be forgotten anytime soon.
