The Civil Defense Directorate (CDD) warns citizens against bad weather forecasts today, calling for caution and the following:

  • Stay away from valleys and areas where flooding may occur.
  • Stay in higher and safer places, especially for those who live in tents.
  • Check and maintain water drainage systems and channels to limit rising water levels, which can flood houses.
  • Provide water-suction motors in houses on lower ground than street levels.
  • Stay away from water bodies to avoid risk of falling.
  • Do not drive for long distances, in case of heavy rain.
  • Avoid driving in poor visibility, especially in desert areas.
  • Safe use of heating facilities
  • Call (911), in case of emergency.
