A sandstorm that's sweeping through Egypt this week is like a scene out of "The Mummy."

Cairo and other parts of Egypt saw highway closures and other weather warnings due to heavy winds blowing up dust and sand.

The sandstorm came just days after a rare system of heavy rains hit the Northern African country.

Local meteorologists believe the sandstorm will continue through the week.
