Dragon Storm: A thunderstorm over the Great Pyramids of Giza

A storm nicknamed the “Dragon Storm” made its way through Egypt on Thursday.

The storm produced a mixture of high winds, heavy rain, and hail that caused sand storms and flooding, respectively.

With all that’s going with the Coronavirus today and the bushfires raging over Australia at the end of 2019, it feels like a maelstrom of “biblical” phenomenons are happening in the world all at the same time.

The Dragon Storm reportedly killed over 20 people, making it the worst storm in Egypt since 1994.

But where there’s natural destruction, there’s often beauty.

Take the photography above over the Great Pyramids for instance.

While there’s some debate over the authenticity of the photo, it nonetheless illustrates the fascinating intensity of nature.
