When you think you’ve been booked to a hotel in Italy, you’re in for a surprise: It’s going to be a very sandstorm.
According to the Italian authorities, Napoli is now experiencing a sandstorm with wind gusts of up to 160 kilometers per hour (100 mph).
The storm is expected to continue throughout the day on Tuesday.
The sandstorm is likely to cause minor damage to buildings and damage to roads, but is expected not to affect the city’s infrastructure.
“We are expecting that sandstorms will be on the increase, but at the moment, the situation in Napolitano is still stable,” the mayor of Napoli Il Grazie di Napoli told the Associated Press news agency.
The sandstorm in Italy is the worst to hit the country in over 100 years.
The storm in the Italian city of Turin has been called the “biggest sandstorm ever recorded,” and has been blamed for the deaths of at least 14 people, including five infants.
