Dust Storm Brings Down a Scaffold in Mumbai

Mumbai saw a strong dust storm today, and a scaffolding next to a multi-story structure collapsed onto the road. Witnesses to the incident witnessed the building crumbling as cars and pedestrians below had to accelerate to avoid the falling structure.

The sun had been blocked from the city by the dust storm and rain, leaving the sky gloomy. The Thane-Belapur road is where the incident took place.

Heavy vehicles traveling to Panvel and Belapur, according to officials, should turn left at the Pavane signal and head towards the White House, Shalimar Chowk, and Mahape MIDC.

Around 3 p.m., a dust storm—a rarity for Mumbai’s coastal areas—erupted with intense gusts of wind and quickly engulfed practically the whole city, reducing visibility, darkening the sky, and impeding pedestrian and vehicular traffic.

Flight operations at Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International Airport (CSMIA) were also hampered for 66 minutes by the inclement weather and low visibility, according to the airport.
