A massive sandstorm rained over the resort town of Eilat on Thursday painting the city in colors of orange and brown. As a destination city for locals and tourists alike, Eilat is known for its reliable sunny, very hot weather year-round. The rare storm was captured on social media by Israelis and tourists alike.
"Following a sandstorm that's passing over the city of Eilat, causing poor visability. There are currently no landings and sights at Eilat Airport."
"Happening now in the Aravah, crazy! Thanks to Shmuel Noma, a police officer in Eilat."
