Several roads collapsed in the Emirates due to sweeping floods

rawda samy - | UAE

As a result of the widespread flooding in the Emirates, a number of roadways have collapsed.

Landslides in the United Arab Emirates create craters and cause roads to collapse in Al Ain and RAK.

The immense force of the landslide is captured on camera, leaving behind an automobile that has been carried away.

Heavy rains cause a huge landslide in Al Ain and destroy roads.

In Al Ain, the heavy rains cause a massive landslide, which in turn destroys the roadways.

A large landslide in the Al Qua district of Al Ain has collapsed a sandy road, forming a gigantic crater. The severe rains and overflowing wadis caused the catastrophe, which significantly altered the route for drivers in the region.

The horrifying force of the landslide is depicted in videos that have been posted by the storm center as well as by users of social media.

It is possible to observe motorists approaching the location with caution, only to retreat once they become aware of the potentially hazardous situation. One video shows the enormous force of the landslide, resembling a raging river, transporting a vehicle away from its location.

The hail storm in the Emirates causes huge losses.

Huge damages were incurred as a result of the hailstorm in the Emirates.

An individual who is a representative of the storm center, named Fahad Mohamad, stated that the situation in Al Ain is absolutely unprecedented.

"The hailstorm was enormous, with the size of a palm comparable to its size." The hailstones concentrated most of the significant damage, including shattered glass and struck automobiles, in sandy and rural regions. Thankfully, there were no reports of injuries in residential areas that were densely populated," he stated.

Because the landslide, which resembled a waterfall, has buried a significant stretch of road, it is currently inaccessible to motorists.

The power of water flow and erosion has crumbled the road, creating a dangerous situation for anyone attempting to navigate the damaged region.

Ras Al Khaimah Police closed some roads due to landslides resulting from heavy rains.

The Ras Al Khaimah Police Department closed some highways in Ras Al Khaimah due to landslides brought on by the heavy rainfall.

A landslide caused a portion of the Ras Al Khaimah road heading towards Emirates Road to collapse in a separate incident. This was due to the severe rains that were occurring in the region. The Ras Al Khaimah Police have blocked off the damaged area and issued a warning to vehicles, encouraging them to exercise caution, reduce their speed, and avoid the compromised stretch of the road. The area has been sealed off.

Due to the tropical conditions in the emirate, the authorities in RAK have temporarily closed the bridge located below exit 129 until they have finished clearing the accumulated water. During this time, drivers are required to take the alternative route.
