Dust Over Pakistan Obscures Indus River Valley28.2N 68.3E
This image shows dust blowing off the coast of Pakistan. The Indus River Valley is barely visible through the thick dust cloud. Heavy dust storms in Pakistan have many cities across the country, including Lahore, Faisalabad, Quetta and Peshawar. The effects of the dust storms were also felt across Dera Ismail Khan, Tank, Mianwali, Ferozwala, Muridke, Sargodha and Sheikhupara.
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.
