TEHRAN – President Hassan Rouhani is travelling to the dust-hit province of Khuzestan on Thursday.

Rouhani’s executive deputy Mohammad Shariatmadari told reporters on Wednesday that during the trip, the president will personally oversee the measures that are being taken to reduce the public affliction after heavy dust swept the province, IRIB reported.

As a result of heavy dust, the province suffered back-to-back power outages, which itself resulted in water treatment shortcomings and outage of water, severely disrupting the lives of the citizens.
