Bahrain warns against unstable weather

Manama, June 26, 2012

Bahrain has issued a warning to fishermen and swimmers to stay clear of rough waters as weather conditions continue to be unstable and two people were reported drowned within a span of just 24 hours.

The death of the two fishermen brought the total number of drowning victims in Bahrain to four within two months.

"Seafarers and fishermen should take precautions when they go out fishing, as the weather is unstable," said a Coastguard spokesman.

"There was a thick dust haze and rising sand on Sunday, which affected drivers, fishermen and the general public." – TradeArabia News Service
