Following the weekend rain, Director of the Fujairah Municipality, Eng. Mohammed Saif Alkham and Director of Natural Resources for Fujairah, Ali Qasim, inspected all dams and valley areas in the emirate of Fujairah where they were briefed on the situation for residents in the flood-affected areas.
Many roads were damaged by floodwaters, especially those that surround Wadi Wurayah, Wadi Ham, Al Bithna and Wadi Sidr.
The Director of the Fujairah Municipality ordered the total repair of these roads, as soon as possible, so they can be reopened to the public. He issued directives to strengthen some of the dams that catch the rainwater.
The Fujairah Municipality calls upon all citizens, residents and campers to follow safety procedures in the event of future unstable weather and flooding, especially to keep away from streams that can rise quickly and endanger human life.
