Meteorologists have sent out a warning to residents to remain indoors and shut windows as more storms are expected on Tuesday.

Multiple cars were involved in accidents due to low visibility in the province.

China suffers from enormous dust storms each spring that lift sand from the Gobi desert and dump it onto cities as far away as Shandong on the eastern coast.

A sandstorm that pushed air pollution levels off the charts hit Beijing in March, turning the sky a dark yellow and forcing airlines to cancel hundreds of flights.
