Which of the following natural hazards is typical to a Yemeni summer?



Dust and sandstorms




Yemen is dry, hot and has little access to fresh water. This doesn’t allow for the growth of many plants, thereby making Yemen mostly desert. Along with a hot, dry climate, winds prevalent in the summer season create many a dust or sandstorm in Yemen. Although Yemen lies between several bodies of water, it is largely protected from water-type natural disasters such as tsunamis, and other types of ocean disturbances. Weather conditions, combined with the location of Yemen and surrounding countries, are not conducive to tornadoes, and Yemen is not located on or near any major fault line making it susceptible to earthquakes.
