Est. Reading: 1 minute
On 22 August 2017, Gauteng was hit by a massive sand storm, which left the City Of Johannesburg covered in a cloud of dust. The effects were spotted from Alberton to Krugersdorp. 

According to the South African Weather Service, the storm was kicked up by strong north-westerly winds pumping through the eastern Highveld areas of South Africa, including Gauteng. Recorded wind speeds were between 35km/h and 70km/h (as recorded by local airports).

Needless to say, local amateur and professional photographers took to Instagram to capture the storm. Here are our top picks.
