This is the moment an enormous freak sandstorm swallowed the capital of Iran.

The massive storm – which had winds of 80 mph – hit Tehran today, leaving four dead and dozens injured.

This video, published by Russia Today, shows how large parts of the city completely disappeared underneath the enormous cloud.

The fierce storm caused a number of traffic accidents and power cuts.

People in the city said the thick dust made the sky suddenly turn orange, the BBC reported.

It is believed falling trees resulted in some of the deaths. Experts say it is unusual for Tehran to suffer from strong storms like this.
