Al-Turki reaffirmed his confidence that Jeddah would be better equipped to handle next year’s rainwater

All main roads were reportedly open during the recent rainstorms that flooded Jeddah but the municipality said it doesn’t have the resources to dry up the rainwater that has gathered inside residential areas in a quicker manner.

Al-Turki told Al-Madina newspaper that Jeddah would be better equipped to handle next year’s possible weather outcomes all thanks to the drainage system being contracted.

The mayor added that in the coming years, the municipality would have the ability to deal with the rainwater in a more efficient way.
