The Rain in Dubai

We indeed got rain today...  It rained at different times in various parts of the city. It can be quite a problem if it rains for very long.  There are not sewer systems to carry the water away.  It can take a while for it to soak into the ground.  Flash floods are common.

I am told that often they send kids home from school if a large storm is brewing.

The roads can be dangerous as they become slippery...

Large electronic signs on the highways warn you to watch for 'water ponds' on the road.

We had water 1-2 inches deep collect in low spots on the compound.
