Heavy rains associated with lightning, thunder and hails lashed Khorfakkan, causing drop in temperature and gathering of water pools on the streets.

The heavy rains, which hit the city and the surrounding mountain villages, also led to the flow of water in valleys such as Wadi Shi, and on the transit road in Khorfakkan, according to state news agency WAM.



As inhabitants welcomed the rains, the municipality started to drain the water from the streets, it added.

In its weather bulletin on Sunday, the UAE Met department said there will be cloud formation over Northern and Eastern areas which will be associated with rainfall at times.
