Deadly and widespread flooding engulfed the northern and western parts of Saudi Arabia between 27 and 29 January, turning the arid desert into raging rivers. Civil Defence have rescued over 100 people from flash floods over the last few days in the regions around Tabuk, Jawf, Madinah and Makkah regions.
One person died in the flooding in Madinah, where around 30 people were evacuated after flooding damaged their homes. Schools have been closed in affected areas.
Parts of the country, including Riyadh and Jeddah, have also experienced strong winds and sandstorms.
A desert turning into a sea¨! That’s just incredible!
