Rescue teams of Jordanian Civil Defense Directorate (CDD) have been working full force searching for survivors in the Wadi Zarqa Ma'in Dead Sea on Thursday, October 25, 2018.

The area was heavily flooded by rainwater which within hours have caused ten deaths and injured a dozen more. Search is still underway for missing persons. A CDD source said the number of deaths has reached seven, but the death toll is likely to increase as those missing have been stranded for hours now.

Many of the injured were transfered to the South Shouneh Hospital
