A large dust storm appeared to devour buildings in Tel Aviv as it rolled into the White City on Wednesday morning.

"It looked like a cloud, but it was very, very low," Simon Abraham, who saw the storm approaching from the Azrieli Towers area, explained. 
When Abraham showed it to other people in the area, they thought it was a fire. "I explained that I'd seen this before in Dubai. It's just going to be very uncomfortable."
