High Waves Cause Floods And Road Closure On The Palm
Some people embraced the rain
While winds blew in the desert and a crane fell on ZSR, the windy conditions also caused high waves on the palm. On the outer parts the waves flooded the roads causing for the tunnel towards Atlantis to be closed.

Avoid Palm Jumeirah Atlantis side. Sea water is coming on the roads and extreme wind. People are stuck in their cars due to flooding. #Dubai— Aisha Yaqub (@chaandbeti) February 3, 2017
