Climate change is effecting urban areas a lot, and with such poor infrastructure in kuwait , it is a disaster for expats, today many buildings in salmiya face electricity outage and in some building appliances got burnt due to neutral not working, the new buildings constructions are so shabby and they dont care a damn about safety as expats lives dosent matter.
