UAE issues alert for heavy rains
Dark clouds hovering across much of the UAE opened up in multiple areas, with several reporting heavy to light rainfall on Sunday morning.
The National Centre of Meteorology (NCM) reported rains over Dubai’s Expo 2020 area, Margham and Al Maktoum International Airport.
Rains have also been reported in Al Ain, Al Dhafra and Abu Dhabi’s Al Mushrif. The Fujairah International Airport and surrounding areas saw heavy rains as well.
The NCM has issued rain-related ‘Orange’ (hazardous weather events expected) and ‘Yellow’ (look out if venturing outside) alerts for all parts of the country.
The Dubai Police urged residents to avoid “open waters, mountainous areas and valleys during unstable weather conditions”.
