At 6.00pm tonight, Wednesday 6 June 2007, the tide was receding, which gave some necessary respite to residents of Fujairah and the UAE’s eastern coast.
By this evening it seemed that Round One was over and Fujairah had come off with little damage. Even at this stage, the reports coming in from the Met Office was that Gonu was weakening but was getting closer to making an impact on the UAE.
One of the jobs to be done before the tide comes in again is pumping out as much water from properties as possible.
Round Two commences at approximately midnight tonight (in just over two and a half hours).
