Iraq - update at 2:00 pm | A strong sand storm hits Baghdad, and the horizontal visibility is only 200 meters

Arab Weather - The satellite images of the Arab Regional Weather Center have monitored the concentration of the Khamasini air depression over central Iraq at this time with low atmospheric pressure values, and as a result of that, active northwest winds blow at speed that worked to create strong dust waves and sand storms that hit large areas of Iraq.

According to the readings received from Baghdad International Airport, the horizontal visibility recorded very low levels, reaching only 200 meters, as a result of the exposure of the capital, Baghdad, to a heavy sandstorm.

While large areas of Iraq are witnessing heavy dust, the northern areas are exposed to unstable weather conditions that result in cumulus clouds and thunderstorms of varying intensity.

Important recommendations from Arabia Weather:

Close the windows and take the necessary precautions for patients of the respiratory system and eyes to avoid serious complications, God forbid

Pay attention to the danger of low or no horizontal visibility due to the density of dust

Attention to the danger of torrential rains and the flow of valleys in some northern areas
