A massive sandstorm in Egypt made everything orange in the huge metropole Cairo. The orange cloud swept through the city, making the Cairo skyline invisible. It gave people the feeling that they were living on Mars. The storm came with winds that rushed through the streets with 50 kilometres an hour and made palm trees bend on the bank of the river Nile. Those that dared to go outside had to protect their face against all the sand in the air.

What problems do people encounter during a sandstorm?

Cairo airport had to deal with flight delays because of the desert sand in the air, and several ports on the Nile had to close. Motorists had to deal with reduced visibility, making the Cairo streets even more dangerous than usual. The ministry of health urged people with breathing problems to stay inside and wait until the sandstorm passed Cairo.

Is there any beauty in a sandstorm?

A sandstorm like the one that hit Cairo is devastating for a city. This storm took lives. So it's not something you would wish to see. On the other hand, seeing what nature can do and how unbelievable strong it is, can be something amazing to experience. When everything is orange, you can make some very beautiful photo's. So if you are ever in a sand storm, I can guarantee you, it is an extraordinary feeling.
