Categories: Middle East & North Africa, Saudi Arabia, Citizen Media, Disaster, Environment

Residents of Riyadh, the capital of Saudi Arabia, were first pleased with the drizzle that started on Saturday afternoon (November 16). A few hours later, it was no longer enjoyable but rather scary when the rain flooded the city.

Here are some of the tweets and photographs shared yesterday, which show flooding. Many commented how a rich country like Saudi Arabia has a poor infrastructure, which cannot handle rain.
