[Editor's Note: Some updates on this blog have been sourced from the community.]

Rains have stopped in most parts of the country — but many residents are still grappling with the aftermath of the worst downpour the UAE has seen in 75 years.


Life is yet to return to normal: Travellers are still on the edge over the status of their flights. Commuters are constantly checking for updates on bus and Metro operations. Children are attending classes from home while many employees are working remotely.

Stay up to date with the latest news. Follow KT on WhatsApp Channels.


As the skies clear up and authorities work round the clock to speed up full recovery, residents are now trying to head out — but how safe is it? Which roads are flooded? Which ones are now clear?

With Khaleej Times' team on the ground and help from the community, we bring you the latest updates on road conditions.
