Hail storms and fog are battering parts of the UAE

Heavy rain battered Fujairah, causing extreme flooding. If that wasn't bad enough, they had an earthquake yesterday too

Ras Al Khaimah and Fujairah are the first to be hit with the thunderstorms across the UAE, with thunderstorms expected to hit inland later on today.

Our favourite people, the National Centre for Meteorology and Seismology, have warned the UAE of low visibility in Abu Dhabi and Dubai, due to early morning fog. 

Earlier this morning Dubai Police tweeted "We request drivers to drive carefully and safely due to heavy fog on internal and external roads."

The thunderstorms are currently hitting Fujairah with temperatures dropping so dramatically that hail storms were reported. As the storms moves more inland, the temperature is expected to drop but not enough to cause hail in Dubai and Abu Dhabi.
