In the last few weeks, unprecedented rains have flooded deserts, roads and cities of Saudi Arabia killing at least 30 people. Now again, meteorologists have issued a red warning for heavy rain in Madinah province. Civil defense teams have been deployed in preparation to respond to any flooding. Biblical!
The General Authority of Meteorology and Environmental Protection said Friday further torrential rain was forecast for several regions of the Kingdom.
These include Tabuk, Madinah and its coastal areas, and Al-Jouf. Thunderstorms are also expected in the Makkah area. Tabuk is currently working on clearing recent floodwaters in inundated areas, valleys and coastlines. And the next donwpour is just around the corner…

Houses of dozens of people have been flooded in Taima, forcing residents to evacuate. Others were swept away by floods in a mountainous area. Best is to get away from valleys as flash flooding can be very dangerous.
But on the other side, Saudi Arabia was made green after recent floods. Her’s a video from November 30, 2018:
Hey guys, please cooperate and follow the warnings issued by the civil defense. They will probably save your lives!
The Prophet, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, said: ‘The Hour will not begin until the land of the Arabs once again becomes meadows and rivers.’
