UAE rains: Oil slick near automobiles in flooded regions adds to people concerns

rawda samy - | UAE

Residents of the United Arab Emirates are concerned about the hazards posed by the massive oil leak that occurred on the highways following the flood.

Oil slicks near cars in flooded areas add to people's fears in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

Fear is growing as a result of the fact that hundreds of automobiles have been left abandoned on the road, and drivers are carefully inspecting their vehicles.

As the United Arab Emirates (UAE) begins to assess damages to homes and businesses and clean waterlogged roadways following an unusual downpour that flooded the country, residents of Sharjah now confront an additional concern: an oil slick on a waterlogged road.

Residents in the UAE discovered additional losses as a result of rain and flooding.

This new concern has arisen on Al Wahda Road, close to the Al Khan interchange, adding to the fears of individuals who are already struggling to cope with the effects of the storm that occurred on April 16. The residents assert that the oil slick has contaminated the flooded roadways, exacerbating the already challenging situation.

"We observed a dark liquid floating on top of the stagnant water," said Ahmed, a Sharjah resident who had come to inspect his abandoned automobile on Al Wahda Road. "We made the discovery."

When I touched the liquid, I had the impression that it was oil for a motor vehicle. The slippery surface extends for about a kilometer in a single direction.

He went on to say, "We are concerned because even a small spark can cause damage that is incomprehensible."

Not only did Fahad and another resident who had come to see his vehicle express anxiety, but they also expressed concern about the further harm that the oil slick could create. "We have already suffered significant losses due to the flooding, and now we must consider the repercussions of the oil slick on both our vehicles and our health," said Fahad, who works in the automotive business.

According to Fahad, "We have already suffered significant losses."

Due to the fact that motor oil acts as a thinner on car paint, it has the potential to damage the paint of cars that have been left abandoned on the streets. Additionally, Fahad noted that extended contact with the oil may result in skin disorders.

There are hundreds of abandoned cars on the road, prompting the residents to gather to inspect their vehicles. The fear that there may be further damage is growing. They are waiting for the cleanup activities to be completed because they are afraid of the implications of the oil spill.
