Morocco’s Ministry of Equipment has called on all road and highway users to exercise caution and vigilance due to strong wind gusts expected tonight and Friday in several provinces across the country.
The ministry has also urged all individuals to postpone travel until weather conditions improve.
In its statement today, the ministry said that it urges “all road and highway users to exercise caution and vigilance due to reduced visibility, or even its absence.”
The statement came in response to a weather alert issued by the General Directorate of Metrology, which predicts strong wind gusts in the provinces of Tetouan, Al Hoceima, Chefchaouen, Guercif, and Taza from Thursday night until Friday.
The ministry also invites road users to contact the Permanent Center of the General Directorate of Roads as well as the call center of Morocco’s highways for more information.
The statement comes as school students are expected to sit for a one week holiday next week.
The Ministry’s alert also came as similar weather marked by dust storms killed at least three people while five others were injured during a traffic accident on the highway linking Agadir and Casablanca due to strong winds in October.
The weather conditions also resulted in multiple car accidents, with many viral pictures showing damaged vehicles.
