BEIRUT- Egypt was hit by rain and winds reaching speeds of up to 37 miles (60 kilometers) per hour in Alexandria on its north coast.

Four-meter (12-foot) waves forced Egypt to shut down the port of Alexandria — the country's largest — as well as another in Nuweiba.

Sand storms swept across Cairo, choking the air with dust and turning the sky a tepid beige.

Doormen and shopkeepers tried in vain to keep the swirling dust at bay, sweeping sidewalks and dusting off parked cars.

Cairo airport remained open.
