An intense dust storm has been reported in northern Afghanistan on November 3, 2016.

According to media reports, the storm developed over the northern Balkh province and spread into other regions.

Areas of Mazar-e-Sharif and Pul-Khumri have witnessed a day turning into night, as the wind storm full of dust set in. Affected provinces include Baghlan, Sar-e-Pul, northern Kunduz and northeastern Takhar.

Numerous power outages have been reported across portions of the Balkh, and main roads connecting Kabul with the north have been forced to shut down.

The storm may spread further into central provinces, all the way to Kabul, although no official reports have been issued by the Afghanistan Meteorological Authority so far.
