Heavy rains, accompanied by thunder and lightning, lashed several parts of the country on Wednesday. Many residents got drenched as they were caught in the sudden showers, while traffic congestion was reported on several roads due to slow moving traffic.

The National Centre of Meteorology (NCM), the rainy and dusty conditions will prevail at least until 11.30pm tonight.

Meanwhile, the UAE’s Ministry of Interior (MoI) and other authorities have advised residents to exercise caution while driving.

“Avoid valleys and places where water flows,” the ministry advised. Heavy rains usually result in valleys flooding as water gushes down the mountains.
