Serious flooding provoked by heavy rainfall turned some roads in the UAE into a huge water canal, which resulted in 12,537 emergency calls across Dubai alone.

Yesterday, December 17, major roads in the emirate were almost at a standstill as water gushes past the streets.

Many motorists had experience traffic jams along Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Road,

Ras Al Khor Road, Meydan Road and Financial Centre Road yesterday afternoon.

Because of the downpour and bad weather condition, in general, 581 traffic accidents occurred in the last 24 hours, said local reports.

Motorists and pedestrians alike are constantly being reminded by authorities to take extra caution when behind the wheel or crossing the streets during this time.

The weather condition is expected to stabilize tomorrow, Tuesday. But light rainfall and a slight drop in temperature are also likely to occur, said The National Center of Meteorology.
