Storm City - 2018 Indian dust storms - Netflix

From 2 to 3 May 2018, high-velocity dust storms swept across parts of North India and more than 125 people died and over 200 injured . In Uttar Pradesh, 43 died in the city of Agra and at least 30 died elsewhere in the state. In neighboring Rajasthan, at least 35 people died and over 200 were injured after winds downed more than 8,000 electricity poles and uprooted hundreds of trees. Storms are not uncommon in the region; however, because these storms occurred at night and with greater wind speeds than average, the death toll was higher than usual.
