Authorities had to work promptly to ease the inconvenience caused to citizens and residents due to heavy rain. Locals spoke to The Daily Tribune: “We daily commuters are seeking alternative routes to escape congestion since there has been a major traffic gridlock on Salmaniya Avenue starting from Andalus Garden towards Salmaniya hospital.
However, many of the inner roads in Manama and Salmaniya are flooded, making it difficult to remove a car from those narrow streets.
“We were trapped in heavy traffic on the way home from work, and many people were driving extremely slowly because there was a risk of accidents and the roads were slick.
“Authorities should take action and let ‘Rain Emergency Team’ take up the situation to clean waterlogged areas especially around hospitals, parks, mosques and other public places.”
