Heavy rainfall wreaks havoc on Yemen

A major clean-up operation is under way in Yemen’s rebel-held capital of Sanaa following days of heavy rain. This resulted in floodwaters sweeping through parts of the city, overturning cars and damaging shops and market stalls.

The heavy rains began on Monday evening and continued through much of Tuesday and into Wednesday, causing dangerously high water levels in some areas. Remarkably, no casualties were reported as a result of the severe weather.

Sanaa, which is located in the country’s mountainous north, is prone to flash floods.
