The Ministry of Municipality, represented by the Department of Hygiene, has taken intensive preparations to deal with the effects of winds and heavy dust that have hit the country's areas since last night.
The field operations crew, consisting of 173 patrols, were set up in various regions of the country to monitor any fall of trees or accumulations of sand or waste, and to remove them immediately to facilitate traffic.
The Department of Public Hygiene confirmed that the field patrols did not detect any obstacles from fallen trees or accumulated sand.
The administration notes that it is fully prepared to intervene and assist around the clock, and calls upon citizens and residents to report any disabilities caused by falling trees, debris or sand accumulations by calling the number 184.
