Kuwait airport activates emergency plan amid heavy rainfall

The Civil Aviation General Directorate in Kuwait said on Sunday that air navigation continued as normal at the Kuwait International Airport despite some reported delays with departure flights caused by ongoing heavy rainfall in the country.

The directorate also said it activated an emergency plan to deal with the ongoing weather condition, according to a statement on state-run news agency KUNA.   

Kuwait is witnessing moderate-to-heavy rainfall across the country and heavy thunderstorms in some areas.

Moderate northeastern wind is expected to shift to northwestern by daytime Sunday with speed ranging between 15 to 50 km/h and weather is expected to improve by Monday morning, the meteorological center in Kuwait has said.
