AMMAN — The initial estimate of infrastructure damage sustained as a result of the snowstorm that hit the Kingdom in December stands at around JD9 million.

Municipal Affairs Minister Walid Masri said the estimation is based on municipality reports, noting that some mayors have not yet delivered their reports to the ministry.

The actual damages will be determined when all municipalities present their reports, according to Masri, who noted that nearly 10,000 trees were damaged by the snow.
