Dubai reels from floods chaos after record rains

April 18, 2024

Dubai's giant highways were clogged by flooding and airport passengers were urged to stay away on Wednesday as the glitzy financial centre reeled from record rains. Passengers were warned not to come to Dubai airport, the world's busiest by international traffic, "unless absolutely necessary", an official said. "Flights continue to be delayed and diverted... We are working hard to recover operations as quickly as possible in very challenging conditions," a Dubai Airports spokesperson said. At the airport, long taxi queues formed and delayed passengers milled around. Scores of flights were also delayed, cancelled and diverted during Tuesday's torrential rain.
