Playing Massive Sandstorm Out of 'The Mummy' Blows Across Egypt

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

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.
