Authorities in the UAE are closely monitoring the weather conditions over the coming days and assessing the readiness levels of all relevant entities.

The Joint Assessment Team led by the National Emergency, Crisis and Disaster Management Authority (NCEMA) has held a series of meetings to discuss the precautionary measures.

They emphasised the importance of complying with safety protocols and official directives, especially in areas prone to heavy rainfall.

People are also urged to rely only on information from official sources and not to spread rumours.

More wet weather has been forecast for parts of the UAE this week, with the peak of the stormy conditions expected from Wednesday night through Thursday.

The National Centre of Meteorology said that the country will be influenced by the extension of a surface low-pressure system.
