Cyclone Gonu Approaching the UAE

At 12.40pm on Wednesday 6 June 2007 the mosques were sending forth the midday call to prayer but there were few of the devout to be seen.

The skin pores were signaling that it was 40+ degrees, the breeze was light and it was starting to become overcast.

The submerged car park that was yesterday looking like an ice ring was rippling with waves. The water was within twenty feet of the main road and huge channels were pouring through pipes underneath the road and quickly filling up areas designed for storm water.
