Unpredictable weather in UAE raises alarm for tornado

Daijiworld Media Network - Ras Al Khaimah (SHP)

Ras Al Khaimah, Jan 21: Lately, the UAE weather that has been rather unstable has resulted in the formation of tornadoes or waterspouts.

Bu Ghaith, an Emirati national, managed to record several waterspouts in the Arabian Gulf off the coast of Ras Al Khaimah, along with Khasab and Musandam areas.

"The tornadoes extending from the sky to the sea seem scary," he added.

With tornadoes, the residents can expect more rains and stronger winds in the coming days.

Earlier in the month, a cyclone was reported in the Arabian Gulf off Ghalila coast which brought in heavy rains.

Meanwhile, RAK police have issued against unpredictable weather and warned the public against driving to the mountains and valleys.

"The public is urged to call (999) in case of emergency and (901) in regular cases," the advisory stated.
