HOAX – Running river of sand in Iraq
TRUTH – This viral footage of a flowing “river of sand” in Iraq is breathtaking, but its not really sand.
Earlier this year, the region known for its dry climate was tormented by its second bout of ice storms, heavy rains and powerful winds. Iraqis reported seeing hailstones the size of golf balls raining down on the Middle East. The Iraq government had to declare a state of emergency in the wake of the extreme weather event.
The incredible spectacle, which looks like moving sand, is actually comprised of several blocks of ice moving at rapid pace through the desert.
