ATTENTION : Saudi Civil Defense : Strong Sand Storm Heading Riyadh
Saudi Civil Defense have used the mobile technology, through STC and Mobily, to issue warning to all residents of Riyadh about the strong sandstorm heading from North ( Khasim Area ), Everybody is recommended to stay home and be very careful.
Last year it was almost zero visibility when the sand storm struck Riyadh.
Riyadh residence are also using facebook, twitter and other social media sites to increase awareness to everybody. There are also unverified reports that students are being sent home.
But I think it would be better if Civil Defense will also issue and English Translation warnings in future.
