Heavy rain effects provinces across Saudi Arabia as weather warnings remain in place


Weather warnings remained in place for much of the Kingdom after heavy rainfall affected provinces across Saudi Arabia on Thursday.

The Presidency of Meteorology and Environment (PME) issued an advanced warning of medium to heavy rain with thunderstorms spanning from the northern border of the Kingdom down to the Eastern Province, and also including the Riyadh Region.



Saudis posted videos and photos of the scenery in Al-Bajadiya, Riyadh Region.

Meanwhile, other cities were expected to continue having thunderstorms, including Al-Madinah in the Hijaz region, and Al-Jouf in the North.

Earlier Thursday, Jeddah residents shared videos of rain flooding a main street in Old Makkah Road.

The Gulf and the Middle East have been affected by the storms that have passed through.

Kuwait International Airport has suspended and redirected all flights. Ministries, universities, public and private schools remained shut in Kuwait.



Flash floods in Jordan forced nearly 4000 tourists out of the ancient city of Petra, killing at least 11 people.
