    Mid-April this year witnessed unprecedented floods in some countries in the Middle East.

    The United Arab Emirates, Oman, Bahrain and Saudi Arabia are usually renowned for their sweltering and dry typically desert climate, but sudden torrential downpours caused widespread flooding, leading to some fatalities and extensive damage.

    These Gulf states are still busy repairing flooded highways and damaged buildings. Entire populations were affected as power was disrupted, schools closed, flights disrupted and people were unable to travel to work.

    Climate experts blame global warming rather than cloud seeding as was speculated on various social media platforms.
