Horror and destruction! Сyclone Shaheen hit the Gulf countries
In the wake of cyclone Shaheen, floods sweep through Yemen
Torrential rains fell in the south of the country on Wednesday evening, causing extensive damage, local authorities said on Thursday.
Floods caused by torrential rains swept through the town of Moukalla in Yemen, extensive damage, local officials said Thursday.
The torrential rains fell on Wednesday evening in this city in the south of the country at war, after the passage of cyclone Shaheen in the Gulf region at the beginning of the week, then downgraded to a tropical storm.
The floods took away "a dozen cars and damaged several businesses and houses, some of which collapsed",
The meteorological services in Aden, the country's second city, had predicted repercussions on Yemen after Cyclone Shaheen hit the Gulf region.
It started with winds hauling between 120 and 150 km/h but was later downgraded to a storm as it hit the land, as per the reports. The Yemeni Health Ministry ordered regional medical authorities to ramp up efforts for effective response to the aftermath of the tropical cyclone.
As the cyclone hit Oman, before making its way into Yemen, authorities evacuated residents from the coastal regions and sheltered at least 2,700 residents of Al Qurm in emergency makeshift accommodations. In Iran, authorities said that the Shaheen annihilated electrical facilities and roads, putting the Islamic republic to a temporary halt. As a precautionary measure, residents in the city of Al Ain, the UAE have been asked to work from home.
