Kuwait Ports Authority (KPA) has suspended navigation at the three main ports of Shuwaikh, Doha and Shuaiba due to bad weather conditions and low visibility. Although cargo stevedoring operations were not affected by heavy rains, ship traffic has been halted at the main ports on a temporary basis, the authority said in a statement.

The authority’s Director-General Sheikh Yousuf Abdullah Al-Nasser Al-Sabah held a coordinative meeting on Tuesday evening to set out a precautionary plan in response to bad weather. Kuwait has been hit by unstable weather conditions involving rainstorms and lightning.

Meanwhile, Air traffic at Kuwait International Airport is proceeding normally in spite of bad weather conditions in the country, Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) said on Wednesday. DGCA Deputy Director-General for Kuwait International Airport Fahad Al- Al-Wagayan said visibility at the airport matches the normal level of visibility in terms of landing and takeoff.

Earlier in the day, DGCA Chairman Sheikh Salman Al-Humoud Al-Sabah made an inspection tour of the airport facilities involving T1, T4 and T3. Al-Wagayan quoted Sheikh Salman as appreciating the efforts of all state agencies working at the airport in response to bad weather conditions. A wave of unstable weather conditions including rainstorms and lightning has been hitting Kuwait for a week.

Furthermore, Ministry of Public Works reiterated that all its equipment are spread around the country as a precautionary measure for any emergency. The ministry said in a statement that Minister of Public Works and State Minister of Municipality Affairs Hossam Al-Roumi is personally following up on work developments in presence of the ministry’s personnel. It added that all ministry’s and Roads Authority’s equipment as well as those of the ministry of defense and the National Guard are put on full alert in anticipation of any emergency that may arise due to the potential downpour.
