On November 5, 2015, heavy flashfloods had taken the lives of four people in Amman.

That year, torrential rain had fallen in Amman for a short period of time. However, the heavy rainfall caused floods in some streets and houses in Amman.

A man in his twenties had died after rainwater raided his house at Al Hussein Camp, east of Amman.

In addition, two Egyptian boys died as flashfloods raided the building where they live in Arjan area of Amman.

The flashfloods had caused closures in the Seventh Circle, Sixth circle and Fourth circle tunnels due to the high level of water.

Vehicles in all sizes and shapes, garbage bins, trolleys and other items were swept away by the floods.

Flashfloods had also raided houses, where over 20 families were transferred from their homes in Amman to associations of the Ministry of Social Development.
