The authorities had already mobilied resources to effectively tackle the challenges posed by heavy rain on the city’s roads.

Late on Wednesday night, Dubai Media Office shared videos that showed the preparations in place by different authorities.

Authorities deployed several trucks to clear the anticipated waterlogging on the streets. They also took measures to cover and secure heaps of sand that had accumulated on the roadside after the deluge last month.

Measures were also taken to clear drainage systems, remove debris, and deploy water pumps to ensure that rainwater is drained efficiently, minimising the risk of flooding.
