UAE residents announce new measures to protect their property from heavy rains

rawda samy - | UAE

Residents of the United Arab Emirates have announced new plans to protect their property from the severe rains.

Residents of the UAE are bracing for heavy rain in a matter of hours.

The United Arab Emirates (UAE) should see heavy rain within the next few hours.

The new precautions that UAE residents have taken to protect their belongings and vehicles from heavy rain are worthy of attention.

Residents of the United Arab Emirates prepare for imminent heavy rains by parking in elevated spots and stocking up on necessities.

Rainy days are something that people living in the UAE always look forward to. However, with the expected severe rains this week, they are preparing for potential flooding by stockpiling food, fortifying their shops with sandbags, and moving their vehicles to safe locations. The floods and severe rain that swept across the nation on April 16 are still vivid in their memories, which is what prompted them to take preventative measures.

The National Center of Meteorology warns of heavy rain in the UAE within hours.

In the coming hours, there will be severe rain, according to the National Center for Meteorology.

The National Centre of Meteorology has issued a warning, predicting heavy rains and unpredictable weather conditions across the nation.

The National Centre of Meteorology (NCM) has issued a warning, predicting heavy rains and unpredictable weather conditions across the nation. There will be a climax in the weather instability on May 2 and 3.

UAE residents planned to face the coming rainstorm.

Residents in the UAE made preparations to handle the impending rainstorm.

Put away some of the necessities.

In response to the weather forecast, homeowners have made the necessary preparations to protect their homes and businesses from the potential damaging effects of water. One of these preparations is to protect a bookstore. Grace Karim and her companion Somia Anwar, the proprietors of Bookends, a bookstore located in Dubai's Silicon Oasis, have decided to lay their heads in their establishment.

Additionally, they have brought in bags of sand to prevent water damage to the premises. Because of the previous enormous rainfall, their store had already suffered major losses, including the destruction of more than 13,000 volumes.

Protection of automobile showrooms: To prevent the harm they have previously experienced, owners of automobile showrooms are also taking preventative measures to safeguard their businesses.

Mahmoud Ahmed, the proprietor of N1 Motors, stated in a conversation that the most recent hailstorm in Al Ain caused damage to approximately 47 automobiles.

He stated that the showroom can only accommodate four automobiles, so he elevated and covered the exterior vehicles to prevent water damage. Consequently, he brought all the high-value automobiles indoors.

Included are an emergency pack and additional clothing.

The locals are resolute in their determination to not allow the heavy rains to dampen their spirits. Despite the fact that they are making preparations for the unexpected, they continue to hold out hope that the upcoming deluge will not be as intense as the one that occurred previously. They want to be as cautious as possible, reducing the amount of potential harm that could occur during this period of unstable weather.

As a result of the lessons he had gained from his past experience, Ligin Thomas, an Indian expatriate, made the decision to avoid driving in the rain in the future. If the weather continues to get worse, I have already made the decision to work from home, like I did the last time. Doing so would be a risk that I will not take. "Even if I had to drive my car to work, I would never make the decision to put myself in danger," he stated.

Additionally, he decided to park his car in a safe location, specifically at an elevated spot far from any areas that might flood or have accumulated water.

UAE residents stock up on basic resources in preparation for the rains.

In anticipation of the rains, the inhabitants of the UAE replenish their supplies of essential materials.

In the aftermath of the storm that occurred on April 16, Lamya Hussain, a Syrian expat who remained inside her home for three days, learned her lesson the extremely hard way. Over the course of those three days, it was challenging for me to place an order for food. No food delivery service was accepting orders, and the establishment remained closed. In reaction to the potentially dangerous weather conditions that followed the storm that occurred on April 16, a number of delivery apps have implemented safety precautions to protect their riders.
