Heavy rains in some parts of the UAE on Friday led to flooding in several wadis across the country. The National Center of Metorology (NCM) posted videos of flooded roads and water gushing down like waterfalls from mountains, especially in the country’s northern parts.
However, despite several warnings from authorities advising residents to keep away from flooded areas during the rains, some motorists are still risking their lives trying to navigate flooded paths to enjoy the cooler climes.
A number of videos shared by the National Center of Meteorology (NCM) show residents driving their vehicles through flooded roads where the chances of being swept away by rapidly flowing waters is very high.
Authorities such as NCM and police have already put out advisories, urging residents to stay cautious while unstable weather conditions grip the country.
They also posted videos showing the dangers of flooding in mountainous regions while urging people to be watchful and to stay away from such areas.
