The Greater Amman Municipality (GAM) has declared a medium state of emergency as a Mediterranean tropical weather depression is expected to affect the Kingdom on Saturday, October 26, 2019, according to Jordan News Agency (Petra).

GAM said it will be following up on any weather updates, confirming that it will provide all services to the fullest during the unstable weather conditions.

GAM has called on citizens to stay away from valleys and lowlands, check the water drainage systems at their homes to avoid any flooding and not to throw wastes inside the drainage systems as they may close down the systems and lead to floodings in case of heavy rainfall.
