Local sources and residents reported that seven people drowned in Shabwa and Al-Mahra governorates in eastern Yemen due to torrential torrents and heavy rains resulting from the effects of an air depression in the Arabian Sea and the Gulf of Aden.
Sources and residents in Shabwa governorate said that three women and two children drowned due to torrential rains in the town of Beihan, north of Shabwa, which also caused significant damage to public and private properties and agricultural lands.
The sources added that two others died as a result of heavy rains and torrential rains that hit the Al-Mahra Governorate in the far east of the country on the borders of the Sultanate of Oman.
In the oil-rich Hadhramaut Governorate, local sources said that heavy rains flooded separate areas of the sprawling Wadi and Hadhramaut desert districts, causing road cuts and significant material damage to property and agricultural lands.
Sources in Abyan Governorate stated that the torrential rains caused the detention of dozens of cars in the Ahwar Valley, which led to the complete interruption of vehicle traffic on the international coastal road linking Aden and Mukalla to Hadhramaut.
A number of mountainous and coastal Yemeni governorates are currently exposed to a new air depression accompanied by heavy rain, thunderstorms and strong winds, which caused severe damage to infrastructure and property and cut off main roads, especially in the governorates of Shabwa, Hadramout, Al Mahrah, Abyan and Lahj.
