'We misjudged this storm': people in the UAE are experiencing power disruptions and water shortages as a result of flooding and extensive rainfall.

We have requested that the residents stay indoors, unless there is an emergency.

The unpredictable weather has affected many people living in the UAE. The unusual weather, including hailstones, lightning strikes, enormous thunderstorms, and devastating flooding, shocked several people.

UAE storm expose many areas to electricity and water outages for residents.

Storms in the UAE expose several locations to the possibility of power and water interruptions for residents.

Many buildings and neighborhoods in the cities of Abu Dhabi and Dubai experienced an interruption in the provision of electricity and water.

Because of the strong winds and the heavy precipitation that shook many windows, shops, and buildings in the Muroor Area and on the island of Abu Dhabi, they were without electricity for more than an hour. This was specifically the case in the Muroor area.

"Our window is trembling so much that it seems like it might collapse on our heads." FD, a resident of the region, reported that rain continues to flow through the closed window.

In a similar manner, several people who live in that region expressed their worries about the interruption in the provision of water and power. "I have lived here for a considerable amount of time now, and I have never experienced an interruption in the supply of electricity that lasted for more than an hour like this one," she said. There is little doubt that we grossly overestimated the intensity of this storm. It was said by MA.

In addition, there has been a disruption in the supply of water and electricity in Dubai, which has not yet been resolved. Siraj, a resident of Al Warqa 1, says, "We have no electricity, no water, and no power supply whatsoever; we are unable to produce food because we are unable to even use our gas; the conditions are bizarre, and it is flooding here."

Despite the unresolved issue with the water and electricity supply in Dubai's Warqa 1 region and ongoing flooding, the situation in Abu Dhabi has stabilized, and the accumulated rainfall has started to dissipate due to the current sunny weather.

The National Center of Meteorology warns of the danger of the storm hitting the Emirates.

On Monday, the National Centre of Meteorology issued a statement to the public in which they warned citizens about the severe weather and the potential threat posed by the storm. In addition, the Abu Dhabi police and the Ministry of Interior issued a warning to the people of the city about the severe weather, urging them to drive with caution and to avoid traffic accidents.
