Roya launched the campaign "Buy from Downtown" and promoted it across all social media platforms, urging Jordanians to go to Downtown and buy from its shops to support traders after the damages caused by the recent floods.

The head of Amman Chamber Of Commerce, Khalil Al Haj Tawfiq, said that waters that raided shops in Downtown Amman caused large losses amounted to nearly JOD 6 million.

The Greater Amman Municipality (GAM) denied being held responsible for the disasters resulted by the floods, asserting that the rainfall which caused the damage to streets and shops all over the country was unprecedented.

The central monitoring station in Downtown recorded the highest rate of rainfall, estimated at 140 mm. However, GAM stressed that its cadres are fully qualified and are always ready for such cases in winter.
