Fed up with the scorching heat, Dubai has come up with a unique method to create artificial rain as temperatures surpass 50C.
Footage of monsoon-like showers drenching roads and sparking flashes of lightning have gone viral on social media, generating interest among users.
Interestingly, the city is now employing drone technology that ‘shocks’ clouds into producing rain.
The rainmaking technology, known as ‘cloud seeding’, was put into use as summer temperatures surged past 50C in the United Arab Emirates city
And the weather manipulating method has largely been a success as cloud seeding contributed to the heavy rainfall seen across the country earlier this month. According to Gulf Today, both the NCM and Abu Dhabi Police issued warnings to the public, urging caution in the wake of poor visibility and driving conditions.
