Vicious Sandstorm Sweeps Through Cordoba, Argentina (Videos)

Several locations in Cordoba, Argentina were swept by a vicious dust storm that heavily damaged homes, uprooted trees and turned the day into night. The storm, that came out-of-nowhere, occurred just before 7pm local time on Sunday, January 5, 2020.

First, locals noticed a doom cloud engulfing the sky. Then temperatures fell dramatically. Finally, the sky became dark and the raging winds, sand and hailstones damaged everything on their path.

According to official sources, the violent dust storm enveloped the city of Rio Cuarto within minutes.

Looking at the wall of sand engulfing the city is just terrifying:

The violent storm was accompanied by hail and strong rains with up to 40mm of rain in some areas.

Just before the storm, inhabitants of Cordoba received a weather warning stating: “isolated storms of varying intensity with powerful gusts, heavy rainfall for brief periods of time, intense electrical activity and hail.”

They had no time to prepare.

Luckily nobody was injured or killed.

Within minutes, the temperatures dropped by more than 20°C from 30°C (86°F) to 10°C (50°F). The 125kmh winds even ripped roofs from houses:
