About the Storm
On July 20, 2022, a severe sandstorm that had just passed over the Haixi Mongol and Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture in the Qinghai province darkened towns and villages in northwest China. Before it moved into populated areas, video showed the storm brewing menacingly on the horizon, blocking out the sun as gusts as high as 53 km/h (33 mph) blew up sand clouds. On Wednesday, the sandstorm reportedly lasted for about four hours, according to witnesses.
Parts of the Qinghai province are normally dry, according to AccuWeather. In actuality, the Qinghai province’s northwest region is regarded as a desert. Forecasters believe that as thunderstorms formed in the western part of China at midweek, sand from these arid or desert regions was likely lifted into the air.
The Chinese state media reports that no casualties were associated with this sandstorm. Since sandstorms are frequent in Northwest China, in 2021 a sizable storm had covered Dunhuang, limiting travel as visibility decreased.
According to the Chinese Meteorological Administration, a sizeable portion of China’s population has experienced unusually hot weather this summer, sometimes shattering records. Large portions of northern, eastern, and central China have been baking in a persistent heat wave since mid-June. This summer, temperatures have exceeded 111 F (44 C) in at least three cities — Lingshou, Gaocheng, and Zhengding in the Hebei province, and Yanjin in the Yunnan province. According to the UN, heatwaves will increase in frequency and intensity over the next few years.
