Sandstorm hits kingdom today
Jeddah- Various parts of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, including the central, northern and eastern regions, could be hit by heavy sandstorms as a result of strong winds this week, the Presidency of Meteorology and Environment (PME) said yesterday.
The PME said winds of 30 kmph could contribute to stirring sandstorms similar to the one that hit the Kingdom several months ago, "Okaz" newspaper reported.
Motorists who travel by night are asked to stay home or delay their trips until the weather becomes stable. PME sources added that a SMS service exists to notify people about sudden changes in the weather.
