DUBAI: Thick clouds of dust blanketed most parts of the UAE, as authorities braced for adverse weather conditions expected in the days ahead.

The Ministry of Interior urged caution on the roads as visibility dropped below one kilometer in Abu Dhabi and Dubai on Sunday.

Abu Dhabi’s official media office urged motorists to “avoid driving unless absolutely necessary” and red weather alert has been issued different parts of the country.

Earlier this week, UAE authorities said they have developed an action plan to deal with expected heavy rain and high winds over the coming days.

“All local and national teams are highly prepared to ensure an effective and proper response to any risks that may arise as a result of the condition,” the National Emergency Crisis and Disasters Management Authority (NCEMA) said in a statement posted on the state news agency (WAM).

Meanwhile, the Ministry of Interior said it is “fully prepared to deal with any emergency situation”.

Last month, seven people died after heavy floods hit the northern and eastern parts of the UAE.
