Maritime operations have been suspended in three Kuwaiti ports due to bad weather, the Kuwait Ports Authority said on Thursday.
Operations were suspended at 8 a.m. local time due to dust storms with northwestern winds of 70 km per hour and low visibility.
There are also warnings of waves on the sea of up to seven feet.
Conditions are expected to improve gradually later in the day, according to the national weather center.
Dust storms are common in the region and are often caused by strong winds that blow from the northwest across the Gulf.
