The highway patrol said in a Facebook post that the Desert Road, especially in the eastern regions and between Swaqa and Al-Hasa, in Wadi Araba, may experience strong dust-blowing winds over the next few days, with some areas experiencing low visibility.

Drivers could call the patrol’s toll-free numbers or the standard emergency number 911 to inquire about road conditions, the patrol said.

The PSD called on people driving on the Desert Road and roads in the southern and eastern regions of the Kingdom to exercise caution, reiterating the danger of heavy dust hampering visibility.
