@mohammed919: Parisian weather in Riyadh today.

On a more sombre note, @amasq shares the toll [ar]:

#أمطار_الرياض : فقد شخصين ودهس ثلاثة آخرين، وإصابة ثماني حالات، ووقوع 712 حادثة مرورية هذي حرب عالميه ماصارت امطار

@amasq: Two people missing; three people run over by cars; eight people injured and 712 road accidents. This is a world war and not just some rain.
