The sky was covered with sand due to a sandstorm in the city of Hafar al-Batin, located in the northeast of Saudi Arabia.
Traffic came to a standstill in the region where the sandstorm was effective.
A shopping mall in the city’s Rafha district was also filled with sand clouds.
“Do not leave the house” warning
As the dense sand cloud entered the shopping center, shoppers tried to escape to areas where the sand did not penetrate.
In the storm, where the number of injured was not disclosed, local authorities warned the public not to leave their homes to stay safe and to car drivers to be careful while traveling.
