KUWAIT CITY, June 26 : The Meteorological Department expects the weather would get better gradually starting from today’s evening and that the dust will last until Monday. In a statement to KUNA, weather forecast observer Abdulaziz Al-Qarawi said that the country has been affected since this morning by dust carried from the northwest, causing a decrease in the horizontal visibility to less than 1000 meters over most areas of Kuwait.
He urged the public to check the weather forecast on their official website www.met. gov.kw and through their smart phones application Kuwait Met. Kuwait’s Ministry of Interior, Sunday, called on everyone to be cautious about dusty weather and low visibility on some roads. In a press statement, the ministry urged the public not to be hesitant to contact the emergency hotline 112 for necessary traffic help. The ministry, further, called on sea-goers to notify the coastguard on the number 1880888 before getting into the water, and to call the same number for any emergency and necessary help. (KUNA)
