Asma Ahmed - | UAE

As a result of the intense rainfall that swept across the United Arab Emirates on Tuesday, April 16, the Dubai Police Department has issued a directive instructing drivers to relocate their vehicles from areas that are susceptible to flooding.

The storm caused extensive flooding and saturated roadways. On a given date, the statement will be made, stressing how important it is to move automobiles to make the city's traffic run more smoothly.

In response to the challenging conditions brought about by the heavy rains, individuals seeking assistance are encouraged to reach out to the authority's call center at 901. This proactive approach aims to provide support to those affected by the adverse weather conditions and ensure timely assistance to mitigate any further disruptions.

The aftermath of the intense downpour saw numerous motorists stranded as their vehicles became immobilized on inundated streets and roads. Consequently, many were compelled to abandon their cars in search of safer ground. In light of this predicament, Dubai Police have taken the initiative to alleviate the situation by advising motorists to relocate their vehicles, thereby minimizing congestion and facilitating the restoration of normal traffic operations.

This call to action underscores the authorities' commitment to proactively addressing the challenges posed by inclement weather and its impact on urban infrastructure. By mobilizing resources and disseminating timely guidance, Dubai Police demonstrate their dedication to safeguarding public safety and enhancing the resilience of the city's transportation network in the face of natural adversities.

The recent heavy rainfall in the UAE has prompted Dubai Police to issue a directive urging motorists to relocate their vehicles from flooded areas to ensure the smooth flow of traffic. This proactive measure, coupled with the provision of support through the authority's call center, reflects a concerted effort to mitigate the effects of adverse weather conditions and uphold public safety in the community.
