A powerful sandstorm hit Ankara, there are casualties.

Six people were injured after a fierce sandstorm hit the Turkish capital, Ankara, on Saturday. An impressive video shared by the city hall shows a large beige cloud of dust enveloping buildings.

 Another video, posted on social media by Turkey's General Directorate of Meteorology, shows massive clouds of dust hanging over homes in the capital, struck by lightning.

 Since the end of last month, the city has been battling drought and very hot flashes.

"Six citizens were slightly injured by flying objects after strong winds in Polatli and surrounding areas. The number of injured may increase," Ankara Governor Vasip Shahin said on Twitter.
