Rain in Al Ain

Rain in Al Ain

It does not rain often in Al Ain so when it does, it is a cause for celebration . . . and photography!

The group's Geoff Sanderson took these photos following a heavy rain.

A roundabout near the Crown Prince's Palace is flooded
Residential areas were flooded for several hours, some for days
Motorists had to adjust their driving habits to deal with flooded streams and slick roads
Fossil Valley looked like a lake
Some roundabouts were impassable for small vehicles
Storm sewers, where they existed, were unable to deal with the water
Wadis in the city carried the water towards the main oasis
