Watch: Dubai malls flooded, airport submerged due to storm, 1.5 years of rain in UAE ended in a few hours.

Dubai, the desert city, had an unexpected beginning to the week with substantial rainfall hitting various parts of the city and other regions in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). Local news agencies and meteorological departments reported that the sudden rainstorms that swept through the UAE brought an amount of rainfall equivalent to over a year and a half of typical precipitation in Dubai, all within a few hours.

Numerous residents of Dubai utilized social media platforms to post videos depicting widespread flooding throughout the city. Waterlogged streets, including those around upscale shopping centres, were a common sight. Visitors trapped inside malls were astonished to witness water pouring from the ceilings, causing sections to collapse. Dubai International Airport (DXB), among the world's busiest airports, faced significant inundation, with water covering the runways, tarmac, and even taxiways. An official post from DXB's account revealed that inbound flights scheduled for Tuesday were rerouted due to the intense rainfall, though outbound flights continued unaffected. The internet buzzed with clips showing lightning striking the apex of Burj Khalifa, the tallest building globally, while a timelapse video capturing the extensive storm and resulting flooding circulated online. By the end of Tuesday, Dubai had accumulated more than 142 millimetres (5.59 inches) of rainfall within 24 hours, a stark contrast to the emirate's average annual precipitation of 94.7 millimetres (3.73 inches), as recorded by Dubai International Airport.

Meanwhile, Fujairah, situated on the UAE's eastern coast, experienced the most significant rainfall on Tuesday. With schools mostly closed across the UAE and many offices permitting remote work on Wednesday, the impact of the heavy rainfall extended beyond Dubai. Bahrain, Qatar, and Saudi Arabia also faced intense rainfall.

In neighbouring Oman, heavy downpours over the past few days resulted in the loss of at least 18 lives, as reported by the country's National Committee for Emergency Management. This rainfall event stands as the most substantial in Oman's recent history, spanning the past 75 years.
