The skies darken as a massive ‘biblical’ sandstorm engulfs a city in northern India

This is the frightening moment that a giant sandstorm looms over the panicked residents of an Indian city before it sweeps away crops.

 

 

 

 

In the video, filmed yesterday in Churu, Rajasthan, northern India, the cloud of sand approaches the city from a nearby desert as residents film from rooftops. The camera sweeps from left to right and shows the cloud stretching across the whole horizon as it gets nearer.

The camera then swings around 180 degrees showing a strange contrast of much clearer skies. Below the mammoth cloud are large numbers of houses and trees at its mercy.

Although no people were injured, the storm did sweep away crops and damaged some properties.
