Egypt – March 26th, 2013

A dust storm is affecting Egypt, blowing across the Fayum Oasis, near the left bank of the Nile River, and obscuring much of the Nile River Delta. With the exception of the Nile River Valley, Egypt’s land surface is a vast desert plateau covered in the sands of the Sahara Desert. Less than 3 percent of the country’s land is suitable for agriculture, and less than 1 percent is able to support permanent crops.
