Kuwait, Mar 25: A massive dust storm made its way into Kuwait, causing much disturbance to normal life.
Mobile networks were jammed, and heavy traffic resulted because of poor visibility that plunged to almost zero.
Flights too were disrupted and the airport was shut down. While incoming flights were directed to other nearby airports, outgoing flights were cancelled.
The dust storm is travelling from Iraq to Iran and into the Persian Gulf. The storm spans more than 100 kilometres and is very thick.
