Authorities in Dubai have stepped up efforts to address the impact of current weather conditions and clear water from the streets.
The ground operations are being carried out by the municipality, the police, the civil defence and the roads and transport authority.
Their emergency response teams have been using tankers and portable pumps to drain excess water and sand from internal streets and major roads.
