Abu Dhabi-based Etihad Airways' flight operations are back to normal after the harsh weather conditions in the United Arab Emirates over recent days, the airline told state news agency (WAM) on Friday.
The UAE saw its heaviest rains in 75 years bringing much of the country to a standstill for two days.
The storm, which hit neighboring Oman on Sunday, pounded the UAE on Tuesday. Eighteen persons were reported dead in Oman.
A couple of days earlier, the UAE’s National Center for Meteorology urged people to take the necessary precautions while driving their vehicles and to steer away from roads that could be blocked by flood waters.

Saudi Arabia’s King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Center (KSrelief) signed an executive program with the World Health Organization (WHO) to boost water and sanitation services in healthcare facilities in Yemen, reported the Saudi Press Agency on Tuesday.

The program, valued at $3.75 million, was signed during the 77th session of the WHO's General Assembly in Geneva.

The agreement was signed by Advisor to the Royal Court and KSrelief General Supervisor of Dr. Abdullah bin Abdulaziz Al Rabeeah and WHO Director-General Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus.

It aims to implement various initiatives, including drilling solar-powered wells in ten healthcare facilities, providing potable water supplies, water quality monitoring, and treatment in 60 healthcare facilities, and conducting training on the operation and maintenance of water supplies.

The program includes the construction of a tower tank in Al-Khawkhah District in the Hodeidah Governorate and rehabilitation efforts to improve water, sanitation, and hygiene services in the Marib Governorate Hospital and Matnah Hospital in the Sanaa Governorate.

These efforts are a crucial part of Saudi Arabia's ongoing humanitarian and relief projects through KSrelief, which aim to alleviate the suffering of the Yemeni people amid the severe humanitarian crisis they are facing.
