The UAE authorities have issued multiple warnings for both rain and dust after the country witnessed heavy rains, hail, and winds all day on Saturday. 

Residents were given some rest from the summer heat that has started setting in as rain fell on the mountains.

Meanwhile, the municipality of the Al Dhafrah region in Abu Dhabi urged residents to be careful when venturing out, since strong winds with rain and blowing dust could be harmful.

The authority also said that all construction equipment such as tower cranes, mobile cranes, suspended platforms, and other heavy machinery should stop running.

The National Centre of Meteorology (NCM) also issued a dust warning, urging residents to exercise caution and drive safely, lock all doors and windows, monitor official weather platforms, and not be directly exposed to dust.

The NCM also shared videos displaying the heavy rains and winds blowing in the nation, along with safety measures to take during the rainfall. 

According to the NCM, several areas of the country experienced rainfall, including Fujairah, Sharjah, and Abu Dhabi.
