Fortunately, Jeddah has enjoyed such a beautiful weather these days due to the rain. Unfortunately, the rain has caused such a big disaster due the very corrupted bad infrastructure that Jeddah is pertaining with the world’s biggest oil country which Saudi Arabia. Jeddah is the main the gate of the Saudi religious tourism due to its near airport to Makkah where millions of pilgrims come every year for Hajj and Umarh.
Ironically, a friend of mine was suppose to come to Riyadh today to spend the Eid holiday but the airport is experiencing such an awful times of the year due that rain. All flights have been delayed since 6 a.m. in the morning and my friend’s flight has been delayed from 2 p.m. to 10 p.m. late night (Imagine waiting all that time on such a circumstances).
To keep this post short, I’ve attached some pictures which talk a lot about how severely the city has been impacted of such a rain.
I wonder, what would happen if Jeddah been raining for 2 weeks with non stop? What could happen? I guess I’ll keep wondering forever!
Pictures have been received through my email. therefore, the source is unknown to me.
