After the heavy rainfall that hit the country on Tuesday, April 16, Al Ain's municipality made a public announcement for residents regarding stagnant water pools and collected water after the storm.

Residents have been warned not to walk, play or swim in stagnant water in residential neighbourhoods, due to the possible mixing of harmful substances with water.


For water accumulated in sandy areas, residents have been advised to avoid such water pools due to the depth of them, which may lead to drowning or slipping in the mud.
