The Greater Amman Municipality (GAM) has declared a "medium state of emergency" for today and "ultimate state of emergency" for tomorrow as a polar air mass is expected to hit the Kingdom tomorrow, spokesman for GAM, Nasser Rahamneh said.

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.

Shopowners are also urged to check water pumps at shops located below street level or in low areas and to take precautions when storing goods in warehouses and basements.

As for anyone seeking help, GAM will be available and reachable on these numbers: 06/5359970, 06/5359971 or 0798166789.
