Intense sandstorm sweeps over Saudi Arabia

An intense sandstorm swept over many parts of Saudi Arabia over the past couple of days, downing streetlights and electricity poles, severely limiting visibility, and forcing authorities to urge people to stay home, especially those with respiratory problems.

The Saudi Civil Defence urged residents to take precautions -- warned drivers to be extra cautious and people to stay at home, especially those with respiratory problems.
