Facts Check: False
News Verification: Thousands of users shared the video on the social media platform. This video is favorites on whatsapp these days as well.
Many users questioned as well like, what would have happened, if it was clouds and it has indeed touched the earth. However it was not a cloud.
As per article published by skandalozno, on July 2016, it is actually a sandstorm and not a cloud. The news article titled as “The intensity and fear that the Sandstorm brings is hard to imagine: WATCH THE VIDEO!”
For all of us who do not live near desert areas, it is difficult to imagine the intensity and fear that a sandstorm brings.
It may not be as scary as a tornado, but they can be massive. As proof, just watch this video.
It features a crew driving a huge truck somewhere in China (somewhere around the Gobi Desert). They were transporting huge machinery when they encountered a desert storm . Instead of going through it or turning around, they stopped, got out of the truck and made a video!
Multiple similar videos can be found from China.
