Dubai: The UAE encountered its highest rainfall in modern history on April 16, leaving residents grappling with flooded homes and praying for safety. The heavy downpours since Monday evening have particularly impacted Sharjah and Dubai, leading to significant challenges for residents.

Several buildings, villas and townhouse communities have been affected, with some areas experiencing power and internet outages since 3 am on Wednesday. Children are missing online classes in several neighbourhoods due to electricity outages.

The Al Majaz Area in Sharjah is among the heavily affected regions, with residents enduring disruptions in essential services.

Authorities are actively responding to the crisis, assessing the extent of damage and implementing measures to ensure the safety of residents. Emergency teams are on the ground, coordinating efforts to address the immediate needs of affected individuals and communities.

In the face of adversity, residents are coming together to support one another. Collaborative efforts are underway to assist those affected by the floods, demonstrating the resilience and solidarity of the community during challenging times.
