Chaos as stormy weather hits the UAE
The UAE was thrown into chaos today when torrential rain and strong winds hit the UAE during a ferocious storm. Videos were shared on social media of flooding inside Dubai Mall and residents shared images of Sheikh Zayed Road which looked more like a river than a motorway!
It’s been a weird couple of weeks for weather in the UAE, with a couple of cyclones having visited the region already as well as fatalities involving high seas.
