Ask anyone living in the UAE and they'll tell you that one of the greatest, most highly anticipated events of the year is when it finally rains. This year, we asked, and the universe delivered - a lot. 

First, it was the Dubai Mall that was drenched with floods following the heavy rainfall last week. Now, strong winds in Sharjah have wrecked havoc on the coast, leaving heavy puddles in the aftermath.

In Fujeirah, storm clouds rolled in ominously on the horizon, presenting an eerily apolcalyptic scene that was captured on video.

Elsewhere across the region, the unstable weather caused chaos for daily commuters.

Government representatives have closed schools across the UAE for the day, and have warned drivers to drive slow and be especially careful on the roads.
