Salt storm sweeps Uzbekistan and Turkmenistan
A western part of Uzbekistan was hit by a salt storm going from the Aral sea.
The dust covered the whole city of Nukus. It became difficult to breath and citizens use masks, the RFE/RL reported.
Locals are complaining that the dust spread even through the windows. The dust contains nitrogen fertilizer that have been gathered at the bottom of the sea for dozens of years.
The disaster also struck Dashoguz region of Turkmenistan.
