Heavy Rain And Flooding Hit Parts of the Arabian Peninsula

Thunderstorms kicked off across much of the southern Arabian Peninsula this weekend after hot and humid conditions in the region, Al Jazeera reports.

In Oman, images out of Muscat's international airport showed very strong downpours on Sunday evening. Visibility was reduced to several hundred metres and flights were delayed while the storms moved through.

Many part of Yemen's capital, Sanaa, were flooded by the heavy rain with water levels in lower lying areas reaching the door handles

Other parts of Yemen have been reported to be flooded as well. Flash flooding was likely in the mountainous areas.

Parts of the UAE also saw a few storms rumble through as well. Dubai and Abu Dhabi reported a quick downpour across the cities on Sunday evening, but the storms moved through quickly enough that no significant problems were reported on the roads.

Showers and thunderstorms will again develop during the heating of the day today and tomorrow over Oman and Yemen, continuing the risk for flooding.
