In once incident, a car was stuck in a flooded tunnel and nearly submerged in water.

Dubai Police have rescued an Emirati woman and an Asian man after they were stranded on flooded roads in the emirate in two separate incidents.

The woman was rescued from the tunnel near Festival City after her vehicle had broken down. The police received a call at 7am on Saturday and rushed to the spot. The police found that the car was nearly submerged in water. The woman had to be rescued through the window as the car's door was stuck and wouldn't open.

In another incident, an Asian man was rescued after his vehicle was stranded on a flooded road in Dubai International City. He, too, was rescued through the window.
