It is surprising how much chaos a little rain can cause in the UAE. At least 10 people have been injured in 25 accidents that occurred in various parts of Dubai due to mild downpour, reports Gulf News quoting the police. And along the Abu Dhabi-Dubai highway, there were 22 accidents.

Apart from the accidents, the rain also caused the slow-moving Sharjah traffic to stall completely, and one of our colleagues spent five hours simply sitting in the jam. Another person was slightly luckier, she spent four hours.

Were you also stuck somewhere? Did the rain soak your spirits after the weekend?
