November 13, 2018, 8:53 am

Response mechanisms have been placed across the country ahead of another anticipated spell of heavy rains on Wednesday, a government committee tasked with addressing the natural threat has said.

The recently­formed coordinative committee for rain emergencies was designed to ensure the safety of the lives of nationals and residents alike, Public Works Minister and State Minister for the Municipality Husam Al­Roumi said.

It combines representatives from all of Kuwait's public bodies, which have expressed their commitment to working alongside one another in addressing the deficiencies witnessed during the recent downpour.

So far, the ongoing meeting has also agreed to instate Col Jamal Fouderi as the committee's official spokesperson, who will be present at an operations room dedicated to the effects of the looming weather conditions.
