heavy Rain in Qatar - Oct 20 2018

This  Saturday the rain in Qatar overwrote  everything . Programs  and events were cancelled - clubs closed -everyone was asked to stay at home .

It started around noon time - just the usual  heavy shower  of  these last  three days . We expected it to stop within one hour . But it  kept raining with a lots of thunder and lightnings until 4 pm . Then little rivers were created in our street . But it was fun - at lower parts of the city  it was worse .Water level   one meter at some parts of Doha .

 One of our child was taking part in an event . The school bus was supposed to get her back around two pm . But the tunnels were all closed and the bus could not get there in timely manner . When it managed to  get  near the modern building  of  Education City area then it could not  get closer to the building as it was flooded .

Finally she arrived home six hours later than  it was planned . Well  , it was an adventurous day .
And the rain is not over !

  It is said that the amount of one year's rain has already hit the country  today .
  It was really a very heavy downpour  for hours .
