A red weather alert has been issued for some parts of the UAE as the military steps up rescue operations in flood-hit Fujairah.

The National Centre of Meteorology (NCM) also issued yellow and orange alerts for several parts of Fujairah, Sharjah and Abu Dhabi, and urged residents to be “extremely vigilant”.

The Ministry of Defence announced ‘Operation Loyal Hands’ will help support civil authorities in the emirate to evacuate stranded residents to shelters.

Taking to their official social media handle, the authority posted several photos of military personnel helping people through the floods.

The Ministry of Interior stressed that “the safety of people and property is top priority”.

The authority added that they are joining efforts with the National Emergency Crisis and Disasters Management Authority (NCEMA) to “respond to emergencies as a result of torrential rains and floods in several regions in the country”.
