Heavy rains in South Sinai close Wadi Teir-Nuweiba road



Heavy rainfall in South Sinai caused the closure of the Wadi Teir-Nuweiba road on Tuesday. 
 
The Nuweiba-Taba road was closed earlier on Monday and reopened on Tuesday for the same reason, according to Major General Essam Khedr, head of South Sinai's task force. 
 
Heavy equipment was used to remove the debris from the road before reopening it, Khedr added.
 
The Meteorological Authority expects rains to continue in South Sinai, according to Khedr.
