Wind ... Dust ... Rain and Hails - Storm

I was in Kuwait city getting my car washed at 5pm after which I decided to head to my office near embarkiya to pick some papers. I looked at the sky and I could see the black clouds coming but as it was kinda windy I didn't expect it to rain.

All of a sudden 5 minutes before 9alat elmagrib strong winds started with dust blowing around with heavy rain and hail stones. The wind was so bad that the goods from some shops flew far away and one of the shops is embarkeya which sells Quran was flooded as the water started coming from the roof. A few people I know had heavy loss of goods. Witnessing the whole scene was so scary that I felt the next thing will be a wave of water coming.

On my way back I took the gulf road. The part near the Ameri Hospital is heavily flooded and police/ambulances are nearly at every corner. Most of the trees and advertisement boards have fallen down.

All this loss in 10 minutes!!! That was a really scary hurricane. I hope there are not too many casualties.

Environmentalists say, SAVE THE NATURE.

I say, "Save yourselves, because nature is going to survive after you have messed it up, however, you wont survive"

Damn! it all ends up some fat arse idiots make money at the expense of our future generations quality of life and also endanger their lives and ours.

And we cannot do anything about it.

I heard there would be a pollution free city between Dubai and Abu Dhabi.
