TORONTO – We may complain about storms in Canada, but we’ve never seen one quite like this.

On Monday, a severe storm, with winds that stirred up a wall of sand, blew through Iran’s capital city, Tehran.

According to the Tehran Times, the storm packed winds of 100 km/h, killing four people and injuring at least another 30.

Most of the injuries occurred as trees and signs fell. The storm also cut power to some areas of the city.
