CAIRO: Both Alexandria and Dakhila ports re-opened for navigation Wednesday morning after being closed for two consecutive days due to bad weather, Youm7 reported.
The Alexandria Port Authority closed the channels leading to the two ports on Monday due to a sandstorm blowing across the country.
Reda Ghandour, the spokesperson for the authority, told Youm7 that ships carrying passengers and goods are sailing in and out of the two ports normally Wednesday.
The winds affected navigational activities as it caused high waves. Ain Sokhna and Safaga ports were re-opened Tuesday, while three Suez ports: Adabiya, Port Tawfiq and El-Zayteyat remain closed.
Egypt’s Meteorological Authority (EMA) has announced that a wave of cold weather currently hitting across Egypt will end Wednesday; low temperature is expected at night in Cairo reaching 8 °C.
