The sources pointed out that the flowing and continuous torrents caused by the flooding of the Ma’rib Dam may cause the traffic to and from Marib to stop, which led the citizens to demand the local authority to move urgently and make water repairs to prevent losses and completely cut off the road.
To that, he directed the Governor of Ma’rib Sultan Al-Arada to form emergency committees to face the damages of the torrents that flooded the Ma’rib Dam.
He urged Al-Arada during his presidency of an extraordinary meeting of the emergency committee in the governorate, to follow the flow of floods, alert citizens and relief the affected people.
The governor stressed the necessity of implementing immediate and other strategic remedies, starting from providing relief, securing roads and corridors, and preserving what was destroyed, in addition to making fenders for the dam’s torrents.
The water had been flooded two days ago after the torrential rains that burst the dam.
In the same direction, the torrents caused interruption of traffic in the road between the city of Mukalla and its western suburbs.
Our correspondent said that the road was stopped on the ground bridge in Ibn Sina after the rise in the water level, which prompted the security defense forces to intervene and prevent traffic.
The torrential rains in Wadi Dafika in the Al-Shahr district caused landslides and parts of the land bridge linking the district with the eastern directorates in the governorate.
