Cyclone Gonu: The Fujairah Walls Come Down

Tourists to the UAE’s east coast could be forgiven for being oblivious to the cyclone that raged through the Fujairah waters last week, disturbing those close to the sea.

Driving along the coastal road today there are few obvious signs of the recent cyclone.

The earth movers that were out in force last week, erecting the very effective barriers against the rising tides, returned today.

They worked at a more sedate pace, dropping the wall and removing the rubble.
