The city of Ubari and its neighbouring areas witnessed a severe sandstorm which caused low visibility on the coastal road linking it to Sabha.

Activists on social media circulated photos and videos exhibiting the severity of the sandstorm, which turned the skies of southern Libya to a yellowish tinge, causing problems for the drivers on the roadway linking the areas of Al-Hattiyah and Al-Qayrayat in Ubari, in addition to some damage caused by the storm to residential properties.
