More rain and flooding over UAE's east coast

Mountainous areas in Ras Al Khaimah and Sharjah's eastern enclave were mostly affected

Heavy rain fell over parts of the country's east coast on Saturday, leading to isolated flooding.

The National Centre of Meteorology said there were downpours over rural Ras Al Khaimah and Sharjah.

Isolated downpours were also reported in the border area with Oman.

Oman saw heavy rainfall last month, with more than two-years worth of rain over two days in some areas, leading to flooding in which four people died.

The rest of the UAE was dry on Saturday but high temperatures and high humidity made for uncomfortable conditions.

Temperatures are forecast to remain in the mid-forties this week, with changeable conditions and humidity.
