Major dust storm sweeps over Yazd province, Iran


A massive dust storm swept over Yazd province in central Iran on April 16, 2018.

Hadi Hadinasab, the director-general of the crisis management department of Yazd governorate, said the storm has fortunately left no casualties or damages. The dense cloud dramatically reduced visibility and left thousands without electricity.

"Reports from various regions in the province indicate last night’s storm has left no damage and there is no need to be concerned," he said, according to Iran Front Page.

The province’s meteorological organization announced the storm had a wind speed of 102 km/h (63.4 mp/h) in the city of Bafq.
