CAIRO – 26 January 2018: Alexandria and Dakahlia ports are still closed on Friday due to bad weather conditions which causes high waves.

General Medhat Attia, director of the Alexandria Port Authority, confirmed the continued loading, unloading, entry and exit of trucks to and from the port on a regular basis despite the closure of the Bogaz.

The decision to close the seaport was taken to ensure the safety of people, ships, and goods, he added.

According to the Egyptian Meteorological Authority, Alexandria experiences a wave of bad weather accompanied by high winds and heavy rains in Mediterranean Sea, which will continue until Saturday.

Alexandria is located on the west end of the Nile River, between the Mediterranean Sea and Marriot Lake. Approximately 60 percent of Egypt’s foreign trade is handled through the port of Alexandria, according to the Alexandria Port Authority.

Dakahlia port is a natural extension of the Alexandria port and offers an easy link to local ways and streets.
