Not bad for a country that did not allow previously its women to drive vehicles, is it?
Torrential rains have hampered life for most in Saudi Arabia, especially Jeddah where urban flooding has taken place. Schools, universities and offices have been closed in certain parts which have received torrential rains.
As per climate experts and meteorologists in Saudi Arabia, the rain could 'only be the beginning'.
