Roya cameras captured a video showing a manhole overflowing with water in Downtown Amman due to high water pressure after a vehicle passed over it on Tuesday, March 5, 2019.

Many areas of Downtown Amman have witnessed formations of water bodies because of the torrential rainfall that the Kingdom witnessed.

However, the Greater Amman Municipality (GAM) has earlier confirmed that all roads in Downtown Amman are open and have not witnessed any closures or rise in water levels, despite the heavy rainfall, except for the manhole flooding.

GAM cadres and teams deal with such cases frequently in several areas of Amman, while continuing to clean up rainwater drainage systems blocked by construction and soil drifts.
