Dust over Pakistan – June 26th, 2012

Also partially obscuring the land below is a layer of dotted “popcorn” clouds  by the Pakistan-India border, in the lower half of the image. In the full image, a series of wave clouds can be seen near where the Indus River enters the Arabian Sea.

In Peshawar, a powerful dust storm hit the valley on Tuesday afternoon killing four people, including three children and injuring more than 30 people. The storm also caused widespread destruction of crops and uprooted trees along the main road — disrupting power supply to many areas of the city.
