Last Night’s Talk Shows: Omicron and Alexandria storms take the spotlight

Aside from continued coverage of the spread of the Omicron variant, the talking heads fixated on severe storms that hit Alexandria last week. The storms, which some say are the worst on record as a result of climate change, resulted in the destruction of some establishments on the corniche, noted Kelma Akhira’s Lamees El Hadidi (watch, runtime: 4:21) and Masaa DMC’s Injy Al Qadi (watch, runtime: 1:28). Schools across the governorate will be closed today and fourth grade exams are being pushed until next week as vacuum trucks clear out flooded streets, Alexandria Governor Mohamed El Sherif told El Hekaya’s Amr Adib (watch, runtime: 10:38).
