DUBAI: The National Emergency Crisis and Disaster Management Authority (NCEMA) has issued a special alert for those in the UAE after heavy rains and waterlogging wreaked havoc in the region. NCEMA on Tuesday advised all citizens to not come out of their homes, except for any emergencies.

The authority also advised vehicles to be parked at safe and elevated locations away from flood-prone areas. In the wake of heavy rains, all schools have shifted to online classes. Government employees have been asked to continue working from home on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Many emirates in the UAE have experienced floods following the heavy downpour. Videos of vehicles moving through the water-logged roads have already gone viral across social media. In some regions, window panes of vehicles were seen cracked in hailstorms. In the past few days, the region witnessed heavy lightning and thunder. Electricity was also disrupted due to the rains.

This is the second such alert being made by the authorities in the last two months alone. Along with this, driving in hilly areas has also been banned.
