MOTION GRAPHIC - Gulf region grapples with heavy rains: Life disrupted across multiple countries

GULF REGION: Motion Graphic shows the effect of heavy rain in the Gulf Region. The United Arab Emirates this week saw its heaviest downpour in the last 75 years, according to the state weather service. "The UAE witnessed its heaviest rainfall on record in the past 24 hours. Surpassing anything documented since the start of data collection in 1949," said the National Center of Meteorology in a statement quoted by state news agency WAM. The rainfall that fell on the country during the past 24 hours "is an exceptional event in the UAE's climate history since the start of recording climate data," the center added. Looking ahead, it said to expect "that the coming hours will witness the recording of larger amounts of rainfall." The UAE's Emirates School Education Foundation also announced a two-day extension of online classes to all government schools across the country. The move was taken to guarantee that safety and security standards in all government schools are met after the heavy rainfall and before resuming regular classes. Fly Dubai airlines has canceled some flights due to bad weather conditions, while many others have been postponed. The UAE Football Federation also announced the postponement of all local football matches scheduled for today, with new dates to be determined later. The UAE's National Committee for Emergency Management urged residents to stay at home and follow safety guidelines, and only to leave home in cases of extreme necessity. In neighboring Oman, the state rescue agency said that heavy rains and flash floods had caused the death of at least 19 people, including nine schoolchildren and four missing. Omani authorities are engaged in rescue efforts, with schools closed in six governorates, including Muscat, due to dangerous weather conditions. Moderate to heavy rainfall is forecast for northeastern and northern Oman in the coming days.(Footage by Ferhan Kanca/Anadolu Agency via Getty Images)
