Flash sand storm over Tehran
Luckily he was able to wait out the sand storm in a nearby building but said, “You could not really tell if the windows had a beige curtains pulled down or if it was sand outside.” According to Amiri, rain storms are usual for this time of year but this sand storm was out of the ordinary.

Dear CNNi , This is picture of the front of a sudden sand storm that swept over Tehran ( west to east ) approaching the center of the northern business district where I was... at around 5 00 pm local time. 10 minutes later, it was as dark as midnight with some of the heaviest winds I have ever witnessed . No one had ever seen anything like it here. The contrast between the clear sky and the storm's apporach, its scale in front of such a large metropolis...I was simply in awe of nature's might. Hope you can share with your viewers. All best Ali (Tehran , Iran)
