The Dragon Storm that struck Egypt in March 2020 may return this fall, warned the Director of the Remote Sensing Center at the Egyptian Meteorological Authority Eman Shaker.
With it will come higher than usual amounts of rain, she added.
In televised statements Shaker explained that this year’s fall season will see higher amounts of rainfall in the Mediterranean basin region higher than normal.
Storm Daniel’s impact on Egypt is close to depression that struck the country in October 2019, she said.
