Saudi Arabia: Strong torrential rains swept through neighborhoods in Makkah… and swept away cars on their way

Dubai, United Arab Emirates (CNN) – Heavy rains, on Friday, led to torrential rains that swept some neighborhoods of Makkah Al-Mukarramah and nearby valleys, sweeping away many vehicles and piling them on top of each other.

And video clips that were circulated on social networks showed the moment the torrential waters rushed through the streets of some neighborhoods of Makkah, driving cars on their way.

The account of the Emirate of Makkah Al-Mukarramah also published a video clip of the moment heavy rain fell on the Grand Mosque in Mecca.

The Civil Defense Directorate called for adhering to the instructions and staying away from valleys and rainwater gathering sites.

And Saudi media reported that the Civil Defense Directorate formed committees to limit the damage to property as a result of the rains in Mecca, while it said that there were no deaths or injuries.

In the midst of the unstable weather in the Kingdom, many regions, including Riyadh, issued instructions to citizens to stay in homes when heavy rains fall and not risk cutting rainwater and torrential sewers, and to inform the authorities in the event of rainwater gatherings.

The Jeddah Municipality also decided to close part of the waterfront as a result of the high waves. The closed area extends from Al-Nawras Roundabout to the Border Guard station.
