Several streets in Dubai have been flooded after the emirate received incessant rains in the last two days.

Some stretches on the the UAE's two key highways have been reopened after authorities worked overtime to drain accumulated rainwater. The Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Road towards Sharjah and the first interchange on Sheikh Zayed Road is now open in both directions, the Dubai Police and Roads and Transport Authority announced.
