Mji wa kisasa wa kitajiri unasifiwa kwa miundombinu bora duniani sasa hivi iko underwater mafuriko ya hatarii hadi shughuli zote kusimama. Hii ni baada ya mvua kubwa na dhoruba na radi.

Tulikuwa tunalalamika bure mafuriko Arusha na rufiji.

Safari za ndege zahairishwa katika uwanja wa ndege wa kimataifa wa Dubai baada ya uwanja huo kufurika maji kutoka na mvua zilizonyesha tarehe 16 Aprili, 2024. Serikali ya nchi hiyo imesema mvua hiyo haijawahi kunyesha kwa miaka 75.

Mvua hizo zilianza kunyesha usiku wa tarehe 15 Aprili na kutokana na rekodi ya Uwanja wa ndege mvua hiyo ilinyesha kwa kiwango cha milimita 142 ambacho ni kiwango cha wastani wa mvua wa mwaka mzima na nusu nchini humo.

Mafuriko hayo yamefurika Barabara nyingi nchini humo na kupelekea watu kuacha magari barabarani huku wengine wakilazimika kuondoka katika nyumba zao. Mamlaka husika zinashughulikia tatizo hili kwa kutumia malori na tanki kutoa maji barabarani.

Heavy rains have hit the United Arab Emirates, flooding major highways and disrupting flights at Dubai international airport – in what the government has described as the largest amount of rainfall in the past 75 years.

At least one person was killed after a 70-year-old man was swept away in his car in Ras Al-Khaimah, one of the country’s seven emirates, police said.

The rains began on Monday night, and by Tuesday evening, more than 142mm (5.59in) had soaked the desert city of Dubai – normally the average amount it gets in a year and a half.

An average year sees 94.7 millimeters — or 3.73 inches — of rain at Dubai International Airport, the world’s busiest for international travel and a hub for the long-haul carrier Emirates.

Some inland areas of the UAE recorded more than 80mm (3.2in) of rain over 24 hours to 8am Tuesday, approaching the annual average of about 100mm. Rain is unusual in the UAE, on the arid Arabian Peninsula, but occurs periodically during the cooler winter months.

Homes were flooded and vehicles were abandoned on roadways across Dubai as authorities sent tanker trucks into the streets to pump away the water. Many roads and other areas lack drainage given the lack of regular rainfall.

Flagship shopping centres Dubai Mall and Mall of the Emirates both suffered flooding, with ankle-deep water in at least one Dubai Metro station, according to images posted on social media.

Lightning was seen flashing across the sky, occasionally touching the tip of the Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building.

The National Center for Meteorology “urged residents to take all the precautions … and to stay away from areas of flooding and water accumulation” in a post on X.

The United Arab Emirates government media office posted on its X account that the downpours were an “exceptional” climate event. Even more rain is expected.

Earlier the weather system caused floods across Bahrain, and left 18 dead in Oman on Sunday and Monday, according to Agence France-Presse.

Both Oman and the UAE, which hosted last year’s Cop28 UN climate talks, have previously warned that global warming is likely to lead to more flooding.

Torrential rain and violent thunderstorms have brought apocalyptic scenes to Dubai with parts of the UAE brought to a standstill by heavy flooding.

Video shows luxury cars submerged in deep water and waves buffeting the traffic while high-end muscle cars and Teslas were seen struggling through the floods as city authorities advised people to stay home.

More than 4.7ins (120mm) of rain has already fallen today - the typical yearly average in the city - with more expected in the coming hours.

Nearly 50 flights in and out of Dubai have been cancelled since this morning, with shocking video showing several jets cutting through murky water at Dubai International Airport, the busiest for international travel.

Flood water cascaded through luxury underground malls while shoppers in designer clothes waded through water.

Above ground, howling winds blew furniture off tower-block balconies while the skies turned black with apocalyptic videos showing lightning strikes every few seconds.

Unstable weather conditions are expected to continue in the region through to Wednesday, UAE's National Center of Meteorology said.

Tujadili mafuriko ya Arusha, Rufiji, maporomoko huko Mbeya na kwingineko nchini kabla ya kuhangaika na hayo ya mabeberu.

Hauwezi kimbilia kuokoa kwa jirani wakati kwako kunateketea.
