Flooding caused a residential tower in Dubai to tilt, forcing residents to flee their homes.

A number of inhabitants chose to spend the night in their vehicles parked outside the tower, while others sought refuge in hotels or in the houses of other relatives.

Late on Friday night (April 19), damage to the multistory tower in Muhaisnah 4 in Dubai forced the evacuation of more than a hundred households from the building.

At approximately 8:30 p.m., the small child of resident Nawal experienced a shock that was similar to an earthquake, and his chair shifted. She stated, "I thought he was just imagining things because I didn't feel it very much." "It was barely a few seconds long," she claimed. About an hour later, a coworker of my husband's contacted me to inquire as to whether or not we had also experienced the "shake." Initially, we believed it to be an earthquake.

On the other hand, a few hours later, authorities from Dubai Civil Defense came to her door and requested that she quickly leave the premises. That was the moment when she became aware of the seriousness of the issue. "One side of the building had suffered damages, causing it to crack and tilt to one side slightly," according to the investigator.

"By that time, my children had already gone to sleep," Nawal stated.

Before waking them up and racing down the stairs, I hurriedly grabbed a pair of clothes and a set of crucial documents that I needed to keep me safe. At that point, the elevators had already gone out of service.

Spending the night: Families evacuated after building tilts in Dubai.

Families had to leave their homes due to structural damage after the building tilted.

Along with the other residents of the 108-unit apartment building, Nawal and her family spent the night in their vehicle parked outside of the building. "While speaking to the others, I realized that the tenants on one side of the building felt the impact of the tilt more than others," she explained to reporters. "One of my neighbors on the first floor even got a small cut because of the jolt."

At this point, the owner of the building, members of Civil Defense, and a number of government officials had arrived at the location.

"They worked quickly to seal off the building and ensure it was safe," Nawal told reporters. "We waited outside, not knowing where to go or what to do."
