Higher amounts of dust from Sahara desert will reach Slovakia on August 2. In case of showers or storms, the dust may affect cars or other objects, the Slovak Hydrometeorological Institute (SHMÚ) informed.

There is a high probability that the dust will remain in the air above the country during the week.

The ground concentration of the dust in the following days may exceed 50 ug/m3. Long exposure can negatively affect people's health, SHMÚ warned, as reported by TASR.
