Tobruk, Lybia has turned blood red as an apocalyptical red sandstorm swept throught the area on January 17, 2016.
Look at the spectacular pictures of the bloody city.
Winds of up to 30 miles per hour (48 kph) are forecast for the area tonight and tomorrow with a drop to 17 miles per hour (27 kph) expected on Tuesday.
Red dust storms can increase air pollution to “very high levels” and aggravate breathing problems, irritating lungs and increasing asthma.
Saharan dust, however, can prove beneficial to the environment as they transport nutrients, thus keeping an area fertile.

Dust and sand storms are one of the most extreme weather phenomena that affect Libya, mainly between January and June.
