Dubai has been forced to deny the horrific floods paralysing the city have been self-inflicted through their infamous cloud seeding operations.

The glitzy city has come to a standstill as a years worth of rainfall fell in 24-hours leaving roads swamped underwater, schools and shops closed and airports plunged into carnage with one person dead.

The United Arab Emirates has relied on the cloud seeding phenomenon for decades.

It sees aircraft operators on the ground manipulating the weather to help with the dry, arid climate and make it a more liveable place.

Cloud seeding generally involves the government flying small planes through clouds which burn salt flares that can increase precipitation.

Some context here - the yearly average for Dubai rainfall is 80mm total. Yesterday 255mm of rain fell in less than 24 hours. Just for context, the average YEARLY rainfall in London is 585mm. It was a huge storm.

Every city should have drainage, even in places with little rain, expect the unexpected.

I liked this style of presenting information. No explanation or commentary, simply pictures/videos

Wow! It seems like this city doesn't have the best drainage system.

No projeto da cidade esqueceram dos drenos subterrâneos. Que vergonhoso para uma cidade contemporânea.

That’s what happens when you over do it with Cloud Seeding . Southern California is having issues with insane amounts of rain; especially in the Low Desert (Coachella Valley)

Hola, Im an aussie teen who lives in Dubai. Just want to clarify, this storm wasn't caused by cloud seeding, because cloud seeding cannot generate wind and hail. I spent the entirety of yesterday fishing garbage cans + items of others out of my underwater street so cars could pass by, putting towels under doors, and calling friends to make sure they were ok. I took a quick spin around my street on my surf board before having to paddle back to my house when it began raining again - I didn't want to get swept away by the flash floods. Schools been cancelled for the rest of the week, it's too hard for anyone to get anywhere. There have been reported deaths and missing people due to flash flooding in other emirates. Please pray for people who were seriously affected by this storm.
