KUWAIT CITY, June 20: Recurring dust storms whipping Kuwait in the spring and summer are quite normal considering the country’s location and surrounding desert climate, said Dherar Al-Ali, the supervisor of stations at the meteorological division of the Directorate General of Civil Aviation.
Al-Ali, interviewed by KUNA, said Kuwait’s location in the northeast of the Arabian Peninsula puts it in close proximity with dust resources, namely the Iraqi marshy lands, Al-Rafidain plain, Iraq’s western Sahara, Al-Sham rural regions, Al-Dahnaa desert and Al- Dabdaba. There are local sources of dust such as Warba and Boubyan islands and the desert region Al-Habari in the northwest, the sand dunes in Al-Huwaimlah and the plant free empty spaces. (KUNA)
