Video: What really happens when it rains in Dubai
Unusually heavy rain hit Dubai all weekend and will continue this week.
Residents awoke to rain and thunder this morning, as well as strong winds. More rain is predicted throughout the week, prompting schools and some businesses to issue warnings.
The heavy rains on Saturday (more than 150-millimetres per hour in Dubai) flooded roads and brought traffic to a standstill. Several flights were also delayed due to road closers around Dubai International Airport, once again triggered by flooding. Temperatures too are set to be affected, and it’s expected to get down to around 12-degrees later this evening.
But one thing’s for sure, as you can see in the video above when it rains in Dubai, it pours.
