Winter kali ini lebih cepat daripada tahun lalu. Badai debu pasir pun datang lebih awal. Jika tahun lalu hadir di akhir bulan Maret, kali ini mampir lebih maju di bulan Februari. Dan, umur kehadirannya lebih lama, satu hari satu malam udara Kuwait ngga enak buat bernafas.

Kabarnya, kegiatan export minyak Kuwait terganggu akibat badai ini. Ministry of Interior Kuwait pun mengirimkan SMS ke masyarakat :

Keep your lights on so other drivers can see you. Don't use the Hazard lights while driving. Slow down and keep a safe distance from the car in front of you




Menurut peramalan 'ahli nujum' cuaca, hujan debu pasir ini masih berlangsung hingga hari Minggu XP
