Arab Weather - When a large sandstorm swept through eastern Libya on Monday, the color of the sky changed to dark red, due to it carrying dust from the Sahara Desert. According to Euro News reports, the storm coming from the desert hindered air traffic and led to the closure of government offices and schools, according to Local media.

In Derna, a state of alert was declared, with authorities advising people to stay away from public places due to poor visibility. Reports indicate that the effects of the storm will reach the east, even western Egypt.

At the same time, the impact of the desert dust extended to southern Greece across the Mediterranean, where the skies in the region took on a dark orange color, and the Greek capital, Athens, underwent an unusual transformation, as red sand covered the Acropolis and other city landmarks, making it look like an otherworldly city.

On the other side of the Mediterranean Red Sea, the cities of Derna, Tobruk and Benghazi were affected by the color of the sky turning red, due to the impact of the large sandstorm that swept the region on Monday.
