A dust-storm hit Upper Egypt’s governorates Luxor and Qena, the traffic authority warned Saturday, announcing the closure of the Luxor-Qena highway to avoid possible accidents.

The traffic authority called on drivers to take agricultural roads instead of the highway, urging them to drive carefully and abide by traffic regulations.

Last month, Egypt witnessed turbulent weather with dust and sand storms in the south.
