Weather Warning hoax

A couple of days back, an anonymous emai was circulated in UAE (Dubai), warning people to stay indoors on Friday due to expected storm and winds speed upto 60mph.

Gulf News has printed this article on the issue:

According to Phil Targett, duty forecaster at Dubai International Airport: “We’re not expecting anything dramatic on Friday according to our modelling data. Friday looks like being a relatively average sort of day.”

    I did’nt get the email but a radio station put wind to the fire yesterday when they had a program about qatar being shut down due to heavy winds and the dubai was next. They were trying to be funny I guess but a lot of people thought it was for real.
