The sandstorm, originated across the Arabian Sea picked up dust from the arid regions of Gujarat and Rajasthan and the winds led it to the city and nearby areas.

According to Indian Meteorological Department, Mumbai, “There is a dustcover enveloping the area because of a dust storm in Rajasthan. The winds are affecting part of Gujarat and north of Mumbai.”

Despite the dusty atmosphere, VK Rajeev, Director of Area Cyclone Warning Centres (ACWC) said that, “the dust storm is actually ‘trivial’. There is no need for any panic; it will get settled by Wednesday evening or Maximum Thursday morning.”(
