A number of roads to the city of Khor Fakkan were temporarily closed as the downpour continued in some parts of the UAE on Saturday evening, the Sharjah Police announced.

Among those that were closed are the Nahwah-Shias Road, as well as the new street leading to the residential area of Al Haray.

The road leading to the top mountain-side tourist attraction Al Suhub Rest House, as well as Al Rabi Tower, was also shut.

The police said the decision was taken to keep the public safe as the rainy weather started filling up wadis (valleys) in the area.

In an advisory issued earlier today, the Ministry of Interior urged motorists to drive carefully and stay away from mountains, valleys, and streams of water.
