Director of the Meteorological Office Raif İlker Buran stated that there will be no new dust flow but the effects of the existing dust particles in the region will continue until September 12.
Buran said that the dust flow from Saudi Arabia has stopped but the dust mass on Syria, Jordan, Israel and Eastern Mediterranean has not disappeared yet. Buran said: “The dust cannot leave the zone. It is moving slowly with the airflows however pushed back from time to time”. Indicating that the current dust particles in the air were affecting the country, Buran said, “According to our evaluations no new dust wave will affect Cyprus. We expect that the mass of dust coming through Libya will move to the Western Mediterranean and the Aegean.”
