UAE Weather Alert
A searingly hot and humid Friday was accompanied by heavy fog on the road from Dubai to Abu Dhabi.
Motorists reported having to stop and park their cars near the side of the road as the fog was so thick, visibility was down to just a few metres.
The fog was especially intense near Shahama and Ghantoot.
“Thankfully it was between 3am and 4.30am so there was not much traffic. But I could not see anything, so I had to stop and park,” S Salam, who was driving back from Abu Dhabi at the time, told Emirates 24|7. Details
