    A sandstorm approaches in Yazd, Iran April 16, 2018 in this image obtained from social media. Picture taken April 16, 2018.

    Iran’s city of Yazd has been engulfed by a sandstorm which transformed day into night and left many without electricity.

    Amazing photos of a sandstorm in Iran show a dense cloud rising and hovering over buildings and roads.

    Sandstorms like this occur over desert land and can reach thousands of feet into the air, propelled by strong winds.
