A windstorm in Buin Zahra, Qazvin Province caused a multiple-vehicle collision that left an unknown number of people injured on Sunday afternoon, according to the director of province's Disaster Management Authority Ali Mohammad Ahani.

"The reports we have received suggest the storm was not severe but triggered massive dust storms that compromised drivers' vision across the city's roads," he was quoted by IRNA as saying. "We do not yet know the exact number of injured people."

The Disaster Management Authority is prepared to take measures in the face of any disasters or unforeseen incidents, according to the official. Earlier this year, windstorms in Takestan, Qazvin Province had hit several parts of this region, leaving dozens injured and causing damage to property.
